Medical malpractice occurs far more often than most people think. In recent years, researchers have increasingly called attention to the persistence and sheer size of the problem.
The Institute of Medicine, a respected medical research organization, released a highly influential report called “To Err Is Human.” The report estimated that up to 98,000 people die in the U.S. every year due to medical errors that could have been prevented. Other frequently cited studies have placed the number of deaths as high as 250,000 deaths per year, which would make medical errors the third leading cause of death, behind cancer and cardiovascular disease.
If you have suffered lasting harm or lost a loved one due to medical malpractice, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries. It is important to consult with an experienced medical malpractice lawyer as soon as possible to ensure your rights are protected.
