It is unfortunate that medical malpractice (med mal) is on the increase in the United States. The the number of deaths yearly due to med mal is staggering – ranging from 44,000 to over 98,000 people dying annually as a result of preventable medical errors.
Medical care providers such as doctors, nurses, and hospitals generally strive to provide good care, but under the stress of medical practice, mistakes are made, and often are catastrophic for the patient. When the negligence of a medical care provider causes a severe injury, they should compensate the injured patient for the injury. Unfortunately, this rarely happens without the necessity of filing a lawsuit.
Of all the types of personal injury cases, these are the most complicated and difficult to win, and the statute of limitations is very, very short.
