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.

Munley Law Cares. We were very happy and satisfied with how they represented us in our auto accident case. They got results. They are compassionate, caring people who really did their best for us. Alexander & Maralyn, Auto Accident Case

About 5 months ago, I had injured my back after lifting a heavy box at work. My employer refused to submit my claim even though the doctor had said the injury was caused by the action. I turned to Caroline Munley for help and I’m glad that I did. She walked me through filing my claim and helped me get the money to pay for my medical bills. I don’t know where I would be without her. Thank you, Ms. Munley! Lisa, a Workers’ Compensation Client
