Thousands and thousands of people die every year in the United States from medical malpractice. Although health care providers and hospitals are usually skilled and dedicated to their patient's care, they sometimes make unreasonable mistakes. Unfortunately, the consequences of a medical error can be devastating to the patient and their family.
Common types of medical malpractice include:
· Surgical mistakes
· Emergency room errors
· Failure to diagnose a disease, such as cancer
· Prescription errors
· Failure to diagnose a stroke
· Dental malpractice
The aftermath of medical malpractice often involves a great deal of financial burden.
