Many times after an accident, an injured individual is victimized again by negligence of people who are supposed to care for them. Unfortunately due to reasons that are beyond the scope of this article, emergency rooms in many urban areas, are overcrowded, understaffed or run by over worked and under trained personnel. Emergency rooms in Los Angeles, are no exception.
Recently the County of Los Angeles had to pay $1.175 Million to a patient, who was transported to UCLA Harbor Medical Center after an accident, where she was supposed to be treated for her injuries. The patient claimed in her lawsuit against Los Angeles County, that her vessel walls were injured when a procedure was improperly performed.
The injuries she sustained at the hospital, in the hands of the doctors, were probably far worst than the ones she had suffered as a result of the auto accident.
