Des Moines ER Malpractice Lawyers: A Proven Legal Team With the Resources to Properly Assess Your Case

Our attorneys can apply decades of experience across the spectrum of medical malpractice in assessing your potential case against a hospital or other liable party. Our reputation for skill and integrity solidifies our relationships with quality medical experts we can consult about your treatment and potential claim.

At Galligan Reid PC, we believe in holding responsible parties accountable for negligence that harms others. In an emergency room setting, negligence may be proven in situations such as:

  • Misdiagnosis of a life-threatening illness or injury
  • Failure to recognize symptoms of an oncoming stroke or heart attack
  • A lengthy delay in treatment that significantly worsens the patient outcome
  • Serious medication errors, including potentially deadly allergic reactions to medication

Trial Lawyers Fighting for Accountability in Emergency Room Care

Hospitals and their parent companies are often liable in emergency room cases, and they defend these cases aggressively. A successful Iowa emergency room error lawyer must be prepared to build compelling cases and try them when needed to obtain just results — two distinguishing qualities of our firm.

To discuss what happened to you or a family member in the emergency room and receive valuable legal guidance, please contact our firm today. We offer a free consultation focused on your needs and concerns.

Our Experts Understand Emergency Room Procedures

When we take your case, we provide you with the resources your case needs. Among these many resources, we include experts well-versed in emergency room standards and practices.

The costs associated with these experts are part of the expenses we advance for the duration of your case. In fact, we do not collect any fee unless we recover compensation for you. This kind of legal fee arrangement is called a "contingency fee agreement."

We structure our fee arrangements with you in this way because we believe in your case. If we evaluate your case and determine that the costs of bringing the case are outweighed by the benefits, we share that risk with you by investing in your case.

However, we do not recommend as a matter of course that everyone pursue a lawsuit. Unfortunately, all too often, the cost of bringing a lawsuit simply cannot be outweighed by whatever potential benefit may exist. The costs we consider, in addition to the obvious financial costs, include the equally important emotional burden that you must undertake to see a lawsuit through to its conclusion.

Other Costs We Bear on Your Behalf

The medical malpractice legal process also involves the cost of gathering the evidence needed in your case. We gather that evidence by interviewing witnesses, by collecting documents and written responses from the other side, and by protecting your rights when the other side attempts to gather the same items from you.

We Understand How You Feel

You are not alone if you find the legal process intimidating. We make it part of our job to guide you through this process.

We put our decades of experience to work for you whenever you have questions. You will know how the law applies to your case. You will know what stage your case is at in the legal process.

Our office provides that level of service because our work in Iowa has taught us that the law is about people. We have assisted thousands of people in your situation when it has come to dealing with a serious injury and an insurance company that will not cooperate.
