Milwaukee Emergency Room Error Attorney

In the healthcare industry, there is no busier environment than the emergency room. Unfortunately, emergency rooms are also the site of thousands of errors every year, many of which can result in unnecessary patient harm and even death on the part of negligent or careless doctors and nurses. More than 225,000 people die from medical malpractice-related incidents each year and almost half of those are the result of errors in the numerous emergency rooms across the country.

Emergency room errors occur every year because of poorly trained staff such as doctors and nurses, understaffed hospital emergency room facilities, and poorly equipped emergency rooms. Resources may also be stretched thin and the health professionals that staff the emergency rooms may be overly tired from too much work. If you or a loved one have been injured because of negligent emergency room staff members, contact the attorneys of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ® today to learn more about your legal options.
