Medical Negligence and Medical Errors Cause Injury and Death

Medical malpractice and medical errors are the third leading cause of death in the United States, behind cancer and heart disease.

Doctors and medical professionals have a duty to uphold a standard of care when entrusted with the health and well-being of their patients.  In reality, however, some healthcare providers fail to meet this standard. Even the most experienced, careful doctors may make a critical error that can have life-or-death consequences. According to the Institute of Medicine, medical malpractice errors cause between 44,000 and 98,000 wrongful deaths every year. More people die from medical malpractice each year than from car crashes. In fact, medication errors alone harm more than 1.3 million people a year.  Some examples of medical mistakes include:

  • Patients not being protected from dangerous conditions in a healthcare facility such as a nursing home
  • Hospital infections stemming from unclean medical instruments
  • Improperly administered medications/wrong dosages/dangerous drug combinations
  • Improperly managing a pregnancy or the delivery of a baby/birth injury
  • Failure to properly treat a medical condition
  • Misdiagnosis of a medical condition, such as cancer
  • Error in medical records

In any form, medical malpractice can result in prolonged illness, permanent disability, or even the loss of a loved one. As the victim of such egregious negligence, you may be legally entitled to compensation for your medical costs, pain and suffering, and additional losses related to the absence of your family member. A medical malpractice lawyer will guide you through this process and help you get the justice you deserve.

First, I want to tell you I hired another firm for my case before Marion, I did not choose carefully the first time is all I will say. Secondly , I would like to say that I do not give the highest rating to many people or companies without earning it. I can say Marion earned it!! She and everyone I came into contact with in her firm handled my case with the utmost professionalism, as well as true empathy for my situation, while not missing a detail about the facts of the case. I can not leave out her paralegal Janice, she was totally on the ball at all times. My case was a personal injury case ( I was hit by a tractor trailer) which was settled for a very fair settlement ! I am sure whatever your case involves, she will handle it in the same manner. She is a great person and an awesome attorney!! She will fight for you!! Jeffrey, a Personal Injury Client

I had a complex medical malpractice case and I wasn’t sure if there was an liability there. I felt there was some negligent behavior on the part of some nursing home staff. This firm, through Marion Munley, took me through all the steps necessary to prove negligent behavior that might have caused death of my loved one. She was very compassionate and very detailed and patience. I think they are a terrific firm. There wasn’t anything I disliked… I would highly recommend them as a Personal Injury Law Firm. They also handle all types of car and truck accidents, workers compensation and social security disability. I think they are the best in town. Guest of Bing
