Medical MalpracticeYour health is your most precious and irreplaceable asset. When you place your health in the care of medical professionals, you are essentially trusting them with your most priceless possession. In order to ensure that this trust is respected, health care providers are both legally and ethically bound to a rigorous standard of treatment that must be met every time they render their services. The failure to meet this standard, either accidentally or willfully, constitutes medical malpractice. 

"Medical error is the third leading cause of death in the US, accounting for 250,000 deaths every year, according to an analysis released on Tuesday... Only heart disease and cancer are more deadly, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)." As published on The Guardian

Medical malpractice is a broad term that encompasses many possible errors, from surgical mistakes to the failure to diagnose or treat a condition in a timely manner. The results, too, can vary, but are generally devastating and expensive. Medical malpractice can lead to serious personal injury, permanent disability, and even death, placing unexpected hardship on families who suddenly find themselves overwhelmed with emotional and financial burdens. Potential losses in addition to the loss of health include loss of future income, support, love, companionship, mobility, and life.
