Important Medical Malpractice Facts
Medical malpractice is, tragically, a relatively common occurrence within the United States. Experts estimate that over one million medical mistakes occur in our country on an annual basis, with more than 250,000 of these being fatal. It is a misconception that medical malpractice does not occur regularly in the United States- it is, in fact, the third leading cause of death in our country. Another common misconception about medical malpractice incidents is that they only happen within hospital environments. The scary truth is that about 38% of medical malpractice claims are from outpatients.
You may have grounds for a medical malpractice lawsuit if a member of your medical team made an error during diagnosis or treatment or acted recklessly or negligently in treating you. These incidents can leave victims suffering for years and have the potential to devastate lives. In many situations where medical malpractice may exist, victims have the right to obtain fair compensation. The best way to find out if you have a medical malpractice case is to consult with a qualified attorney who has experience fighting for the rights of medical malpractice victims.
