Kansas City Emergency Room Mistake Attorneys

Skilled ER Accident Lawyers

Time is of the essence when a person rushes to the emergency room in need of immediate attention from a physician. Unfortunately, an individual may be stuck waiting for hours before he or she is treated. If the excessive wait time led to further health complications, a patient may have a cause of action for medical malpractice.

At Dempsey & Kingsland, P.C., we understand the stress and urgency of seeking emergency room attention and will hold medical professionals accountable for mistakes made in the ER, including excessive waiting time.
