Unfortunately, mistakes are made - for various reasons - and preventable injuries and even deaths can result. If a hospital, doctor, or nurse failed to take action, or took the wrong action, and you or a loved one were injured or died, contact one of our Montana emergency room errors lawyer to tell us about your case.

We've seen cases where an understaffed or inadequately staffed ER fails to diagnose a condition, order appropriate tests, carefully review test results or x-rays, or respond quickly to a health emergency. In other cases, the ER discharges the patient too soon and without sufficient monitoring or instruction for after-care. These errors can result in permanent injury or death from a stroke, aneurysm, heart attack, meningitis, or allergic reactions to medication.If a hospital ER does not have proper procedures and protocols, if it fails to assure that personnel have the appropriate credentialing, if it fails to institute or live up to reasonable standards, the result is malpractice.
