Emergency Room Negligence in Orlando
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.
