Our Michigan emergency room doctor malpractice lawyers at Buckfire & Buckfire, P.C. handle lawsuits against emergency room doctors. Emergency room physicians, also known as ER doctors, care for people who are in dire need of medical care, diagnosing patients from a wide range of illnesses and from all ages and backgrounds. ER doctors go through extensive training to learn how to diagnose medical conditions with limited information and in a short amount of time.
Emergency room doctors are a vital part of the health care industry, however there are occasions when patients suffer injuries or even death due to errors in the emergency department. When these mistakes happen, the injured patient may have an emergency room doctor malpractice lawsuit.
