Medical malpractice occurs when a health care provider’s action or inaction deviates from the accepted standards of medical practice resulting in an injury to a patient. Unfortunately, medical malpractice is much more common than you may realize.
According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, treatment errors and mistakes made in the provision of health care to Medicare patients are reported by hospitals in only 14% of the cases. This means that 86% of these errors go unreported.
Hospital medical errors are the third leading cause of death in the United States. Preventable events lead to the death of 210,000 to 400,000 patients who seek care at hospitals each year. Moreover, 1 out of every 8 patients nationally suffers a potentially avoidable complication during a hospital stay.
The injuries from medical malpractice can lead to large medical bills for additional treatment, lost time from work, and an inability to earn a living. The medical malpractice statute is very complex and requires an experienced medical malpractice lawyer to guide you through the process.
