Eugene ER Dumping Lawyer With More Than 35 Years of Trial Experience
If your visit to an Oregon hospital's emergency room resulted in you being "dumped" as a patient because you were without medical insurance, and you were unable to pay for treatment at another hospital, you could pursue legal action against that health care facility for its EMTALA (Emergency Medical Treatment and Active Labor Act) violation.
I am the Oregon trial attorney who aggressively protects your rights in EMTALA cases — and has aggressively advocated for seriously injured people just like you for more than 35 years. I am Robert Miller, founder of the Law Office of Robert Miller in Eugene.
My medical malpractice law firm was founded to protect what matters most: you. We are dedicated to assisting Oregonians who have been victimized by the negligence, carelessness and abuse of others.
EMTALA law states that a hospital should provide a medical examination to any patient who enters its emergency room. If you have an emergency medical condition or are an expectant mother in active labor, the hospital must treat you with available staff and facilities. If the hospital cannot do so, your condition must be stabilized before you are transferred to another hospital that offers space and qualified staff and that agrees to your transfer.
When a hospital in Eugene, Greater Portland or elsewhere in Oregon violates EMTALA law, and you or a family member is victimized by a failure to treat, please report this immediately to the Law Office of Robert Miller. Our toll-free number is 866-272-0803.
My staff and I always respond promptly to your e-mail or fax message. I can visit your home or hospital room if your medical condition prevents you from traveling.
The Law Office of Robert Miller Protects What Matters Most — You
Oregon hospital admissions personnel and emergency rooms can violate federal EMTALA law by inadequately screening a patient and failing to detect his or her illness or injury, or by failing to stabilize a patient before transfer or release.
EMTALA violations can result in civil penalties against the hospital and the doctor who approved a patient's transfer or refused treatment. Patients victimized by these situations can bring an action against the hospital and physician.
The practice of dumping patients on other hospitals is illegal. Take action now to protect your rights by contacting the Law Office of Robert Miller if the injury or illness for which you sought treatment was overlooked by emergency room administration for insurance purposes.
