Did you know that medical errors are the third leading cause of death in the United States? Only cancer and heart disease kill more Americans.
Tragically, more than 98,000 Americans die each and every year from medical errors that could have been prevented. From surgical errors to improper medication administration, mistakes in medical care can be costly and can result in serious life-threatening injuries and even death. When a doctor or healthcare professional acts negligently or recklessly, they can – and should – be held responsible. After all, they are held to the highest standard of care and deviating from that standard of care could cost patients their lives.
