Emergency Room Errors in Richmond, VA
Richmond Medical Malpractice Lawyers Fight On Your Behalf
Emergency rooms are constantly filled with high-pressure situations, requiring everyone present to be alert and on top of their game at all times. Unfortunately, this is not always the case. Overworked employees and understaffed facilities can lead to mistakes with serious consequences. When medical staff or hospitals are negligent in their treatment of patients and injure them as a result of that negligence, a medical malpractice lawsuit may be filed.
Approximately 30% of all emergency room medical malpractice lawsuits are filed because of misdiagnosis. In such a high-pressure, high-volume situation, it is not surprising that patients begin to be treated like numbers. At Cantor Stoneburner Ford Grana & Buckner, we guarantee that you won’t be treated as just another number. Because we limit our caseload, our Richmond medical malpractice lawyers devote extensive time and effort solely to your case. Since 1979, we have obtained hundreds of millions in compensation on behalf of our clients, including more than 100 verdicts and settlements at $1 million or more.
