Over 400,000 Deaths A Year Linked To Medical Errors

By July 22, 2014February 9th, 2017Medical Errors

A new study published in the Journal of Patient Safety reports that 440,000 people die every year due to preventable medical errors. The journal Health Affairs reports that one in three patients admitted to the hospital will suffer from medical errors, yet according to the National Center for State Courts, medical malpractice claims make up less than two percent of all civil cases.

When you are injured or a loved one is killed due to medical error, you have a right to hold the responsible parties accountable and seek compensation for all of your damages. However, without the assistance of an experienced medical malpractice attorney it is unlikely that you will ever see even a portion of what you are due.
