South Carolina Emergency Room Errors Lawyers

When you or a loved one has to go to the emergency room, the experience is inevitably filled with stress and fear for all involved. There are so many uncertainties during these visits that it is often difficult to remain calm or composed. Among your own confusion and anxiety, you expect the emergency room staff to be prepared for any situation. Their job is to serve people in dire situations and it is important to have confidence in their ability to do so. Many emergency rooms across South Carolina are well staffed and capable of providing appropriate care. However, when emergency rooms fail and errors occur, the consequences for the patient can be extreme. Negligence and inadequate care can result in mistakes, worsened injuries, illness, or in the worst cases, death.

Emergency room errors can be devastating for all involved. When these errors occur they should not be ignored, and the medical personnel involved must be held responsible. The South Carolina emergency room errors lawyers at Evans Moore, LLC are prepared to help you fight back against malpractice and receive the compensation you need.

Common Emergency Room Errors

A number of different problems may arise in an emergency room due to the high stakes cases an emergency room receives. However, the emergency room may be held liable for these errors if they occurred because of negligent behaviors on the part of the staff members or medical personnel. Negligence may present itself in many different forms, which may make it hard to identify. Below is a list of common emergency room errors to consider:

  • EMT or paramedic neglect
  • Lack of timely and thorough examination
  • Inadequate priority based on medical needs
  • Transferring or releasing a patient for financial reasons
  • Misdiagnosing a medical condition
  • Mistakes made with medication
  • Misinterpretations of test results
  • Ignoring or downplaying a patient’s symptoms
  • Delayed treatment
  • Failure to perform appropriate tests

Given that emergency rooms are hectic places, the likelihood of error is greater than in other medical settings. This risk is especially high if the emergency room is overcrowded, as many tend to be. In these situations, medical staff cannot devote the appropriate amount of time to all patients that need care, which can lead to serious consequences.

I recently retained Mr. James Moore to represent me in an accident involving a trucking company. He settled the case in a timely and professional manner, and i couldn’t be more pleased with the outcome. I would recommend him and the firm, with the highest regards, to anyone needing legal representation.


God Bless James Moore & Scott Evans for the work they do – fighting for those that cannot speak for themselves, those that are pushed aside and thrown away, those that do not have a voice, those that are true victims.

After having the door shut in my face, countless times I met with James and Scott, who agreed to take the case to see what he could do. Each time , throughout the process I called the office, no matter who I spoke to or why I called, everyone made me feel like a valued client. I am grateful for the Evans Moore law firm and will recommend them to anyone who would find their representation useful.
