Healthcare in the U.S. in among the finest in the world. Healthcare professionals are highly trained, dedicated individuals, who in most cases only want what’s best for their patients.
However, mistakes occur – and more often than you might imagine. According to a recent John Hopkins University study, medical errors are the third leading cause of deaths in the U.S. – only heart disease and cancer claim more lives.
Medical malpractice occurs when a medical error resulting from negligent behavior on the part of a healthcare provider causes the injury or death of a patient under their care. The impact of a medical malpractice injury on the victim and their family can be devastating.
If you or a loved one have been the victim of a medical error caused by the negligence of a doctor, nurse or other healthcare professional, you have a right to seek compensation for all the pain, suffering, economic losses and medical bills resulting from your injury.
