Emergency rooms provide care for people suffering from anything — from indigestion to appendicitis. Quickly diagnosing and treating those patients who are acutely ill can mean the difference between life and death. Unfortunately, emergency room doctors are sometimes under pressure to cut costs by not ordering expensive tests or referring patients to expensive specialists.
If you have been injured or a loved one has died due to the failure of an emergency room doctor to diagnose and treat your illness, you may have a legal course of action in the form of a medical malpractice lawsuit. Cavanagh Law Group provides aggressive representation in cases of emergency room negligence. Our goal is to obtain compensation for our clients and to hold medical professionals to the high standards that our society expects.
