Medical Malpractice Cases Require Experienced And Assertive Attorneys
In a hospital, you expect illness and injury.
You expect safety too, but you shouldn’t. Not with medical errors now the third leading cause of death in America (according to a 2016 Johns Hopkins study). That’s around 10 percent of all fatalities in the U.S. – quite a number, given the trust we put in our doctors and hospitals.
Some politicians say we need “tort reform” to get rid of frivolous medical malpractice suits brought by unethical attorneys. But that’s clearly not the case. To the contrary, it’s likely there aren’t enough claims brought for actual medical errors, as odd as that sounds.
Medical Malpractice Is A Tough Area Of Law
It’s not “easy” to sue a doctor for malpractice and win. Nor should it be.
But patients who suffer life-changing illness or injury from medical negligence – or who die because of it – do need justice. They need a way to hold healthcare providers accountable.
Medical malpractice occurs when a doctor, hospital or other health care facility fails to care for someone in accordance with the accepted standards of the medical profession:
- A sponge or other foreign object is left inside you after surgery, only to break down and cause serious organ damage later…
- A medication error (and mismanaged follow-up) causes uncontrolled bleeding…
- Your baby develops cerebral palsy from an unnecessarily delayed C-section…
You want answers. You deserve answers. Not everyone gets them.
