Fighting For Boston Families For More Than A Decade

New Hampshire Emergency Room Error Lawyer

Unlike a routine visit to a hospital or doctor’s office for a check-up, no one plans for a visit to the emergency room. If you have suffered an injury or illness that has caused you to need to be rushed to the emergency room, you are likely feeling highly overwhelmed and fearful about what is going to happen to you. Unfortunately, despite the medical professionals working in emergency rooms receiving high levels of training and certifications, errors may still occur. These errors can result in even more damage than you had suffered when going into the emergency room and you should be compensated for your losses. 

An individual who has been injured due to an emergency room error should never have to fight for justice alone. The New Hampshire emergency room error attorneys at Sweeney Merrigan Personal Injury Lawyers have a proven track record of pursuing successful outcomes for their clients as they obtain the fair compensation they deserve.

How Can You Prove Emergency Room Errors in New Hampshire?

You may be surprised to learn that victims of emergency room errors tend to be completely unaware of what happened to them or what caused them to suffer injuries. That is why it is essential to speak with our knowledgeable team of New Hampshire attorneys if you believe you may have been the victim of an emergency room error. If you suspect that the medical staff in an emergency room may have been acting negligently while you were in their care, you may have the right to seek compensation for your injuries. 

In order for your emergency room error claim to be successful in New Hampshire, you must be able to prove the four elements of negligence:

  • Proving that the emergency room staff owed the patient a duty of care
  • Proving the emergency room staff deviated from the standard of care
  • Proving the emergency room staff’s actions caused your injury
  • Proving you suffered damages due to the emergency room staff’s negligence

Once you have established that the emergency room staff’s negligence led directly to your injuries and losses, you must be able to pinpoint exactly what negligent actions occurred. Some common examples of emergency room errors in New Hampshire include:

  • Misdiagnosis
  • Improper performance of a procedure
  • Medication errors, incorrect prescription or the wrong dosage amount
  • Delayed or failure to treat a condition properly
  • Poor monitoring of the patient
  • Lab, paperwork, and other administrative errors
  • Miscommunication between staff members
  • Contaminated or wrong blood type transfusion

Pursuing a claim against an emergency room in a negligence case may become convoluted in New Hampshire. When pursuing compensation after an emergency room error, it is important that you work with our team of highly skilled New Hampshire lawyers who have experience negotiating on your behalf to pursue the compensation you deserve. 

How Much Should You Be Compensated for an Emergency Room Error Claim?

After you have suffered due to an emergency room error, it is your legal right to pursue compensation for the losses you have endured as a result of the negligent acts of the emergency room staff. At Sweeney Merrigan Personal Injury Lawyers, it is our belief that victims of emergency room errors should not be made to pay for their own recovery. The trusted legal team at Sweeney Merrigan Personal Injury Lawyers can help you pursue justice for the harm you have suffered. 

While there is not a specific amount you should expect to be compensated, our attorneys may be able to help you calculate what damages you may be eligible to collect based on the specific details of your case. These damages may include:

  • Lost wages and earning potential
  • Significant disfigurement or disability
