Did you know that preventable medical errors (medical malpractice) is the 6th largest killer in the United States? More people die from medical malpractice than from Alzheimers or Diabetes. Patients are at risk from a wide variety of errors such as being given the wrong medication, wrong site surgery (operating on the wrong body part), forgotten objects and equipment like sponges or clamps left inside a patient after surgery, improper diagnosis and incorrect treatments. While it seems incredible that obvious errors like leaving sponges in a wound or operating on the wrong body part could still happen in this day and age, those errors do happen every day, causing tremendous injury and harm.
Medical malpractice cases are very difficult cases to bring. They require an attorney who understands the medicine involved and who can aggressively litigate the case from a legal perspective. They require expert witnesses from around the country to provide testimony. They also have very stringent deadlines and filing requirements that differ from ordinary injury claims.
