Medical Malpractice Information

 

Medical malpractice, including medical mistakes and negligence, is one of the leading causes of preventable death and injury in the United States. Every year, medical malpractice accounts for nearly 100,000 deaths in our country . In addition to causing tens of thousands of deaths annually, medical malpractice is also the cause of serious and often permanent damage to patients who have innocently placed their lives in the hands of negligent medical professionals.

Of these injured victims, only one in eight will ever seek compensation for their losses and suffering. All of these patients deserve a chance to be fairly compensated for their losses and suffering.

Medical malpractice can involve serious errors such as wrong-site surgery, labor mismanagement, a botched procedure, or other gross mistakes. Yet in most cases, the negligence is less obvious, though equally detrimental. Many medical mistakes occur when a doctor or other health practitioner absentmindedly prescribes the wrong medicine, does not check into a patient”s medical background thoroughly, otherwise fails to meet the acceptable standards of providing prudent and skilled medical care.


Do not settle for less than fair compensation!
