Emergency room errors can result in serious injuries or death. Sadly, many of these incidents are preventable if only emergency room personnel perform their jobs in a professional and conscientious way. Failure to treat an emergency room patient or delayed treatment are two common ways emergency rooms can injure patients.

If you or a loved one has suffered harm due to negligence on the part of emergency room or EMT personnel, you may be able to claim compensation for your losses and suffering. To protect your ability to obtain compensation, you should speak with an emergency room malpractice lawyer as soon as possible.

Pribanic & Pribanic in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, is a law firm dedicated to obtaining compensation and justice for victims of medical negligence, including:

  • Failure to diagnose or treat heart attacks or heart conditions
  • Failure to provide emergency medical treatment
  • Unreasonable delays in the evaluation of serious medical conditions
  • Failure to provide lifesaving medications in emergency room settings
  • Premature discharge from the emergency room or examination room
  • Other types of emergency room negligence

Is it possible to sue a hospital?Failing to identify serious cardiac conditions is one of the most common types of emergency room mistakes and emergency room negligence. In these types of cases, a person comes to the emergency room complaining of pain in the left arm, chest pain, shortness of breath or irregular heartbeat. Rather than correctly diagnosing the condition, it is dismissed as a gastrointestinal upset or another insignificant condition.

When representing you, our lawyers will conduct a thorough investigation. When it can aid the legal effort, we will retain the services of medical specialists or triage nurses who can identify the mistake or failure to treat and the care that should have been provided.



We also represent people who have been injured due to medical malpractice in Veterans Administration (VA) hospitals. The process for handling a VA malpractice claim is markedly different from a standard malpractice claim. Claims must be filed in federal court. There are time limits and fee limitations to consider. Also, decisions are determined by bench trials rather than jury trials. If you are pursuing a claim against a military hospital, it is important to consult with an attorney who is familiar with the process.


Pribanic & Pribanic will seek compensation for all of your losses by assessing the financial losses you have incurred, the suffering you have experienced and potential future medical expenses.

Contact our firm today by calling 800-392-4529 to speak with an experienced Pittsburgh medical malpractice lawyer.
