Patients go to their doctors and nurses for trusted advice and treatment regarding their health. They trust that they will be treated and get better, not harmed further. Unfortunately, there are times when these trusted medical professionals can be negligent and cause patients to suffer. Patients are entitled to receive a standard of care, and when medical professionals fail to provide this standard, the result may be medical errors such as misdiagnosis or birth defects.
Medical malpractice cases are surprisingly common, ranking as the third leading cause of death in the United States. Medical professionals who choose to take shortcuts instead of following proper safety procedures should be held accountable for their negligence.
