The Medical Malpractice Problem
Study after study by unbiased university and government researchers has documented that many thousands of people die each and every year due to medical malpractice. Famous studies by the National Institutes of Health and leading medical journals have concluded that at least 100,000 and likely over 200,000 people die every year because of mistakes made in hospitals – not even counting the people hurt or injured by the medical malpractice of doctors outside of hospitals.
Many Different Types of Malpractice – But Only One Real Cause of Malpractice
In each and every one of the hundreds of medical malpractice cases we have handled, there is one constant factor: a doctor wasn’t following basic safety rules, or he wasn’t paying attention. This isn’t a surprise – in any profession, there are going to be people who cut corners, or think that safety rules don’t apply to them but only apply to other people.
Just as even the best driver in the world must pay attention or he will run a red light, the best doctor in the world is going to hurt his patient if he doesn’t pay attention to them, or ignores safety rules.
Our medical malpractice clients have been killed or injured because a family practice doctor tried to perform liposuction, because a weight loss surgeon tried to cram too many operations into one day, because an internist prescribed the wrong medication, and because a pediatrician was in too big a hurry to see the symptoms of meningitis that killed a child. They have died because a doctor didn’t order the right test, or didn't order basic monitoring, didn’t refer the patient to a qualified specialist, or because they ignored the results of an MRI. The list of the ways that doctors hurt their patients through carelessness, mistakes, or failing to pay attention is endless.
