Medical Malpractice

Almost 100,000 deaths occur every year in the U.S. because of avoidable medical mistakes by health care professionals who betray our trust in them. This staggering statistic exceeds the annual number of fatalities caused by breast cancer, prostate cancer, drunk driving, tractor-trailer crashes and plane crashes combined.

Tens of thousands of others suffer serious, catastrophic and permanent injuries as a result of preventable medical mistakes. Whether it is the failure to diagnose cancer by ordering a few basic tests or a surgery that was unnecessary or carelessly performed, medical errors carry devastating consequences for innocent victims and their families.
