Medical Malpractice is Happening Too Much

According to recent studies, more than 98,000 wrongful deaths occur annually due to medical malpractice. In fact, more people die from healthcare errors than from all vehicle accident deaths. Physician error, hospital negligence, and mishaps concerned with medication mistakes result in injuries to over 1.3 million people per year.

Medical malpractice injuries can include some of the following types of injuries:

  • Brain injury
  • Birth Injury
  • Cerebral Palsy
  • Quadriplegia
  • Cancer Misdiagnosis
  • Bronchoscope Devices
  • Medication Overdoses
  • Surgical Negligence
  • Anesthesia Malpractice
  • Contaminated Blood
  • Wrongful Death or Injury due to Medical Negligence
  • Cardiac Arrest
  • Strokes & Heart Attacks

We do not advocate filing frivolous or unsubstantiated claims or claims with only  minor complaints. Medical malpractice legal claims are difficult and costly. You are required to find  medical experts who will substantiate or agree in writing that a serious medical error has occurred. Insurance companies soften pay attorneys to put up a vigorous defense of malpractice claims.

You should not have to go through the difficulties of pain, suffering and severe financial hardships alone.  You should not be paying for your physician’s errors or negligence.  That’s the reason why we have insurance – to spread out the costs of negligence so it doesn’t fall totally on one individual.

If you or perhaps a family member are living with the consequences of medical negligence, you should contact an experienced legal professional who will protect your legal rights and get you the damages to which you’re owed.
