Emergency Room Malpractice Attorneys

Helping Victims of Emergency Room Errors Across Connecticut

Doctors, nurses, and other emergency room staff are expected to ask the right questions, order the right tests, and observe the symptoms that will help them make a correct diagnosis. When they don’t follow standards of care, patients can have serious or even fatal complications. The emergency room malpractice attorneys at D’Amico & Pettinicchi, LLC stand up for injured patients.

If you were injured in an emergency room, you have legal rights, and we’d be honored to help you understand your options. Contact us today to schedule your free consultation.


When a preventable emergency room error occurs, patients suffer needlessly. Some examples are:

  • Misdiagnosis
  • Misinterpretation of test results
  • Failure to consult a specialist
  • Medication errors
  • Delays in treatment
  • Wrongful discharge

By definition, many patients who are seen in the emergency room are at risk of serious complications if their conditions are not properly diagnosed and treated. Too many patients are given the wrong treatment or even sent home. When that happens, serious and even fatal complications can follow. We stand up for injured patients
