Medical Malpractice > Improper Emergency Treatment


Usually, if you are a patient in a hospital emergency room, you didn’t plan on being there. You may be in the emergency room because you were involved in an auto accident or a work-related accident or because you had a sudden heart attack or a stroke. The emergency room can be a hectic place. The emergency room doctor’s job is to quickly and efficiently diagnose the patient’s medical problem and either treat the problem or refer the patient on for safe and appropriate care. Sometimes that involves admitting the patient to the hospital and calling in specialists.

In the emergency room, proper diagnosis is critical because that determines the course of the patient’s medical care. All too often, patients are discharged from the emergency room with out complete examination or without the appropriate testing. Sometimes, a patient is discharged from the emergency room when he or she should have been admitted to the hospital for care by a specialist.

Whenever we review a case involving emergency medical malpractice, we carefully examine the emergency room’s medical records and the results of tests or x-rays that were done. We consult with doctors who not only work in emergency rooms, but who also teach emergency medicine resident physicians.

Nate consulted with medical experts, dug in and proceeded with the civil suit. I remember him telling me several times that [my wife’s] story was compelling and was deserving of his team’s full commitment and skill. We eventually settled before trial and were thrilled with the results, we felt justice prevailed. Nate was patient, thorough and a trusted advisor to us through this.


He went to bat for us with health care providers and workman’s comp people. He fights for what is right. He really cared about what happened to my husband. Now, he will be taken care of for the rest of his life.

Mike Miller and the firm were all excellent to work with and were extremely professional.


We worked with Brad Kallmyer who was phenomenal. He listened well and was very thorough and professional. I give all the credit to Brad. The staff was very kind, very understanding. They made my mom feel important. Brad’s integrity and the firm came through for us. They were great.


Words cannot express how tremendously grateful my husband and I are to Nate and his team during the most difficult times in our lives. He walked us through every step with the up most respect, never hesitating to answer any and all questions, or simply giving us a word of encouragement. It was a relief to know that he was always on our side, fighting for our case and believing that it was worth fighting for.
