If a medical professional or institution made a mistake that left you with a life-changing injury or cost a loved one’s life, you need a medical malpractice attorney with experience in handling these complicated cases.
Doctors and hospitals want you to believe that medical negligence is a rare occurrence, but the Institute of Medicine (IOM) at the National Academy of Science estimates that 44,000-98,000 Americans die each year from preventable medical errors. In fact, according to the IOM, medical errors are the eighth leading cause of death among Americans. That’s more that the total who die from motor vehicle accidents, breast cancer, or AIDS.
Medical negligence by a medical professional could include error in diagnosis, treatment or illness management.
