According to a report from the American Institute of Medicine, medical mistakes kill as many as 98,000 people every year and up to 7,000 patients die from errors in prescribing medicine. This far exceeds the annual number of people killed as a result of traffic accidents (43,450), breast cancer (42,300), or AIDS (16,400).
Even if a medical mistake is not fatal, it can cause severe, permanent damage, such as brain injury, paralysis, amputation, disability, or disfigurement.
Medical malpractice is about far more than dollars or statistics. The errors take a terrible toll on the lives of innocent victims.
Medical malpractice occurs when a doctor fails to act with a reasonable standard of care. When someone who is not a doctor makes a mistake, he or she is often said to have acted negligently. Malpractice is simply negligence applied to healthcare professionals. Tragically, a doctor's mistake can have severe -- or even deadly -- consequences for a trusting patient.
If you or a loved one is the victim of medical malpractice, you need to protect your legal rights.
