Medical errors caused by malpractice and neglect are the third leading cause of death in America today, according to a recent study by researchers at Johns Hopkins Medicine. Medical errors claim more lives than stroke, accidents, lung disease and Alzheimer's disease. Only heart disease and cancer cause more deaths than medical malpractice.
Most medical errors are a result of breakdowns in the system. When medical providers and hospitals do not follow the appropriate safe care standards and rules that are put in place to keep patients out of harm's way, critical and sometimes fatal errors happen. A medical malpractice attorney is trained to look for violations in the appropriate safe care standards that lead to serious or fatal injury.
