Approximately 80,000 deaths occur in the United States each year partly as a result of medical negligence.
It’s the third leading cause of death in the United States behind heart disease and cancer. In 2009, the Massachusetts Department of Medicine found that roughly 1 in 3 doctors have committed at least one medical error that could be the subject of a successful medical malpractice lawsuit.
People make mistakes, and even though doctors swear the Hippocratic oath to “first, do no harm” a mistake in their field can be debilitating--even deadly.

There are four main categories of medical malpractice:
Doctors and hospitals are required to follow a professional standard--the Standard of Care--for all patients. If a court rules that the doctors violated that standard, and their actions result in injury then they have committed medical malpractice.
Medical negligence is also considered malpractice. If a patient is injured for any reason by the negligence of doctors and hospital staff, then they may file a medical malpractice lawsuit.
Some common medical malpractice lawsuits include:
A medical negligence attorney can help you! They’ll go over the details of your case and determine whether or not your treatment constitutes medical malpractice.
Malpractice cases are reasonably complicated. Doctors are frequently backed by their hospitals and their malpractice insurance companies. They’ll all have lawyers helping them fight your malpractice lawsuit.
Even worse, some doctors and medical professionals will try to hide their negligence. An error could increase their insurance premiums, and doctors are committed to keeping those rates as low as possible.
Lawyers specializing in medical malpractice can help find out whether the medical professional is at fault and, if so, litigate the tort to ensure that their client receives the appropriate amount of damages for their pain and suffering.
