Emergency medicine depends upon the ability of the physician to recognize illness and life-threatening conditions, stabilize a medical crisis and pass the patient to the right specialist for further diagnosis and treatment. Negligent errors of judgment in the emergency room can often prove fatal. If you believe that the death or permanent disability of someone in your family resulted from emergency room negligence, contact the Pennsylvania medical malpractice lawyers at Biancheria & Maliver P.C., in Pittsburgh.

is a board-certified internist as well as an experienced and accomplished trial attorney concentrating her legal practice on medical malpractice cases. Her practical experience in medicine and her professional relationships with consulting physicians help with the proof of emergency room negligence claims through the identification of specific mistakes.

Some common examples of emergency medicine malpractice are the following:
- Failure to recognize the symptoms of heart attack
- Failure to treat a ruptured aneurysm
- Delay or failure to order immediate surgery
- Missed symptoms of stroke or closed head injuries
Many instances of emergency room negligence reflect the physician's failure to consider the risk of a particular medical condition on the basis of superficial characteristics of the patient — for example, she's too young to have a stroke, or he's too fit to have a heart attack. Our experience with the investigation and proof of malpractice claims related to emergency medicine can make the decisive difference in the resolution of your claim.
