Cedar Rapids Emergency Room Error Lawyer
The emergency room is a place of inherent stress, where life-or-death decisions must be made in a matter of seconds and every issue that comes up is potentially life threatening. Understandably, this is an environment that is extremely stressful for any doctor, nurse or other medical professional. However, almost every profession carries with it some degree of stress and this is no excuse for making a poor decision which endangers or even costs the life of an innocent victim. A taxi driver cannot be excused for causing a wreck, nor a pilot for crashing a plane. For these same reasons, a doctor should be liable for injuries that he causes due to poor judgment.
If you or a loved one has been injured as a result of an emergency room error, contact the Cedar Rapids emergency room error lawyers of Leehey Olson Law, P.C., at (319) 294-4424, and we will send a message that this type of negligence is unacceptable.
Liability in Medical Errors
Proving liability in a medical error injury can be difficult or impossible without the aid of an experienced Cedar Rapids emergency room error lawyer. It must be shown that the error was not an unavoidable one. That is, if any reasonable doctor in the same situation would have taken the same steps, the doctor may not be held liable for the consequences. However, if it can be showed that the error was one of judgment, and that a reasonable doctor would have taken a different course of action, then they may be held liable.
If you or a loved one are victimized by an emergency room error, contact a Cedar Rapids emergency room error lawyer from Leehey Olson Law, P.C., at (319) 294-4424. We will fight to put the law on your side, and we will hold those responsible for your injuries accountable for their actions.
