Doctors make mistakes: are you a victim of medical malpractice?

Written By Eva Brindisi Pearlman | March 11, 2016

 

We are taught to trust medical professionals with our lives. However, sometimes, we forget they are human too.

 

In 1999, the Institute of Medicine published a study that shocked millions. They claimed that every year, 98,000 people die from medical malpractice. Fourteen years later, the Journal of Patient Safety released more devastating news. They announced that medical malpractice presently claims the lives of up to 440,000 people each year.

 

This places medical malpractice as the third leading cause of death amongst Americans behind heart disease and cancer.

 

Medical malpractice should not to be taken lightly.
