We trust our doctors, nurses, and medical personnel to be experts in their field. After all, they are trained to uphold a high standard of care, to “do no harm.” Unfortunately, thousands of mistakes are made every year in hospitals, urgent care centers, and doctors’ offices, that can cause you to suffer, sometimes causing serious injuries, disability, or even death.
With more than 440,000 patients injured and 210,000 killed annually by preventable hospital errors, medical malpractice is the third-leading cause of death in the United States, only surpassed by cancer and cardiovascular disease. When someone fails to uphold the right standard of care, you may have a claim for medical malpractice, such as:
- Medication Errors
- Surgical Mistakes
- Hospital Negligence
- Birth Injuries
- Birth Traumas
- Erb’s Palsy
- Cerebral Palsy
