MEDICAL MALPRACTICE

Medical Malpractice in Little Rock

Little Rock Arkansas Medical Malpractice Lawyer
No one likes the idea that medical malpractice (med mal) is alive and well and on the increase in the United States. It’s unfortunate that the number of deaths yearly due to med mal is staggering – ranging from 44,000 to over 98,000 people dying in hospitals as a result of preventable medical errors.

There is more to these statistics than meets the eye. The human costs alone are devastating but also think in terms of disability costs, health care system costs, and other associated costs. These rack up yearly expenditures of between $17 billion and over $29 billion.

Little Rock medical malpractice lawyer, Michael Smith and his partners have extensive experience in this area of the law and a complete grasp of the minutiae involved to handle these cases. It’s a long and involved and exceedingly complex journey for those attempting to find justice after being harmed as the result of medical malpractice. We are with them every step of the way.

A dedicated attorney fighting for you in Arkansas

While you may not realize it, there are more people killed in the US as a result of medical malpractice than die in auto accidents. This isn’t something to be proud of and the figures seem to creep up each year. The horror though is that the statistics we see now are only those cases that have been reported. Many people aren’t aware that what they have experienced at the hands of the medical system may constitute medical malpractice. 

How do you prevent medical malpractice? This is an interesting question and one that has been hotly debated over the years. Many conclude it is the doctors that are the authors of their own misfortune, as they seem to be ambivalent about regulating themselves. Their very inflexibility and self-protection leaves only legal action taken by a medical malpractice attorney to shake things up and call for changes to the system.
