There are accepted standards for emergency room care, and Hal Waldman and Associates holds hospitals and medical professionals to them.
If a loved one was turned away from the ER, received substandard emergency care or suffered lasting harm or death from unforgivable mistakes, our experienced attorneys can explore your medical malpractice and hospital negligence claims.

Experienced Representation for Emergency Room Errors
ER doctors and nurses are not expected to save every life or diagnose every unusual malady. They do have a duty to treat all patients in a reasonable time frame, follow through on patient complaints and recognize signs of serious conditions.
Hal Waldman and Associates has held hospitals and emergency room physicians accountable for:
- Failure to diagnose heart attack, stroke, pulmonary embolism (blood clots), appendicitis, meningitis, internal bleeding and other life-threatening conditions
- Failure to triage and treat patients in a timely manner, leading to hemorrhage or cardiac arrest while “parked” in the waiting room for hours
- Failure to call in specialists
- Failure to run additional tests
- Failure to keep patients for admission or observation
- Administering medications without checking for contraindications
- Failure to monitor patients in beds or post-surgery recovery
- Emergency surgery errors
- Discharging without a diagnosis or referral
We Are Prepared to Do What It Takes to Win Your Compensation
We have the resources to hire experts in emergency medicine and hospital administration who can attest that the ER staff deviated from accepted medical standards or that the hospital was not adequately staffed or equipped. We take cases to trial when hospitals and their insurance companies deny liability or refuse a fair and reasonable settlement.
We work to maximize compensation for a loved one’s wrongful death or to maximize compensation for medical intervention, ongoing care, lost income, permanent disability, and pain and emotional suffering.
