Medical Malpractice Attorneys

Medical Malpractice Attorneys

The Journal of American Medical Association (JAMA) reports that approximately 22.8 million Americans have at least one relative that has been a victim of a medical mistake in U.S. hospitals or other medical facilities. In the worst cases, medical mistakes can cause permanent, debilitating injuries and even death. In fact, the Institute of Medicine (IOM) estimates that between 44,000 and 98,000 patients die each year in the U.S. due to medical malpractice. Even at the lowest malpractice fatality estimate of 44,000 deaths, this number of malpractice fatalities exceeds the deaths caused by breast cancer (about 43,300) and AIDS (about 16,500).
