Cases involving accidents or malpractice by physician, dentist, nurse, pharmacist, or other health care professional, such as prescription drug mistakes, errors in diagnosis, treatment, or surgical procedure; and licensing, credential or consent issues.
Medical accidents and medical malpractice result in numerous injuries and death. According to the Civil Justice Resource Group, up to 200,000 deaths each year are due to medical accidents and up to 120,000 deaths annually occur due to medical negligence.
Medical negligence is the improper, unskilled, or negligent treatment of a patient by a physician, dentist, nurse, pharmacist, or other health care professional. These numbers are staggering, and when it affects you and your family the results of medical negligence can be devastating.
Medical negligence can occur in any medical situation, from an appointment with your dentist, an emergency room visit, an annually scheduled physical, outpatient surgery or even high-risk operating room procedure. Even the smallest error by a doctor can have life-altering or even terminal results.
