Medical errors continue to hurt and kill a staggering number of Americans every year. In this section of our firm’s website, we have put together specific information about some of the most common types of preventable medical error and medical malpractice. We also have information on some of the injuries most commonly suffered as a result of preventable mistakes in hospitals, clinics, doctors’ offices and nursing homes.
Our Guide to Medical Malpractice
In this collection of articles on Malpractice A to Z, our goals are to:
- Help answer questions for consumers, patients and families who have seen something go dreadfully wrong in their own medical care. This can start you down the road of learning what really happened and whether or not it should have been prevented.
- Give you the knowledge to get safer, better medical care in the future. See especially our “Patient Safety Tips” at the bottom of many entries.
- Enlighten you about what happened to specific patients in other cases, with our “true stories.” The goal again is to help arm you with knowledge to get better care for yourself and your loved ones.
For more general information on how to find out if a bad event is malpractice, and how you can investigate your case and hire a highly qualified medical malpractice lawyer, see our article, “Is It Malpractice?” You will find it in our “Free Fact Kit for Injury Victims.”
