Medical Malpractice

Injuries and death due to medical malpractice is a national epidemic. Each year about 98,000 people die from preventable medical errors and 1.5 million people are injured from prescription medication errors alone.

Medical malpractice happens when a doctor, nurse, or other healthcare provider acts negligently and injures a patient. It can happen because a diagnosis was missed. It can happen because the wrong surgical technique was used. It can happen because the wrong medication or dosage was prescribed. It can happen because the patient was not fully formed of the risks of a drug or medical procedure.
