Emergency Room Negligence
Emergency departments provide care to patients with an array of medical problems ranging from minor ailments to life-threatening conditions such as heart attacks, stroke and trauma. The majority of emergency department personnel are educated, skilled professionals who have honorably accepted extremely challenging roles. These dedicated individuals are unselfish, hard working and occasionally required to render life or death decisions.
There are thousands of compassionate, qualified healthcare providers in our state that provide care with expertise and sound medical judgment. However, with crowded emergency departments or improperly supervised staff, a patient’s complaints may be overlooked or misunderstood. In some circumstances, the very nature of an emergency may not be recognized or the patient may not receive the immediate care necessary.
Florida Medical Malpractice Attorney, Michael Barszcz, M.D., J.D., and his team of legal professionals have the highest level of respect for the men and women who treat patients and save lives. We object to frivolous lawsuits that interrupt the medical practice of diligent, skilled, health care providers. However, we also believe that it is essential to offer honest, professional and experienced legal counseling to the victims of actual medical negligence. The successful pursuit of a meritorious medical malpractice claim allows the victim to recover reasonable compensation and may lead to improved hospital policies or the prevention of a similar episode of medical negligence.
The staff at the Law Offices of Michael Barszcz, M.D., J.D., serves each client with diligence, dedication, and respect. Mr. Barszcz is committed to maintaining a small firm so that our lawyers can maintain a close professional relationship with each client. We focus on honestly and aggressively protecting the interests of injured people and their families.
Michael Barszcz is both a qualified physician who obtained his MD degree from Brown University Medical School, and a qualified lawyer who obtained his law degree from the University of Florida College of Law. This extensive education enables him to offer both legal and medical advice to people in need of both. He can handle the most complex personal injury cases, using his medical knowledge in legal representation of his clients. He works only with severely injured people who need top-quality legal assistance. In his previous 20 years of successful law practice he worked as a defense attorney for hospitals, doctors and insurance companies. This has given him excellent insight into how best to prosecute a medical malpractice case. The following are examples of the type of emergency department claims that Mr. Barszcz has successfully pursued:
- Medication errors
- Delay in diagnosis, or misdiagnosis, of emergency conditions such as heart attack, pulmonary embolism (blood clot), aortic aneurysm, stroke, internal bleeding
- Nursing negligence
- Admission errors (not taking a thorough medical history), triage errors
- Patient “dumping” (denying diagnostic testing, or inappropriately transferring a patient with little or no insurance but with an unstable emergency condition)
- Physician negligence
- Failure to fully evaluate or treat a patient's condition
- Faulty or incomplete laboratory testing
- Failure to adequately monitor an ER patient
- Premature discharge of a patient
