Unfortunately, they are humans too, so mistakes and negligence are in their DNA.
the all-too-common mistakes by medical professionals
A study in 2016 shows that over 250,000 people die each year due to medical errors in the United States alone. That is a staggeringly high number that has made patients extremely weary about who they trust to diagnose their illness, prescribe their medicine, or perform their surgery.
This number is a highly debated number due to the fact that people judge what is and is not a medical error differently. However, if this number is accurate, it would be the third highest cause of death in the United States behind only Heart Disease and Cancer.
This number, whether it is 100% accurate or not, still only accounts for the deaths due to medical malpractice. The number of injuries, illnesses, or worsened health conditions is too high to even count. If you think there is even the slightest chance you have been the victim of a medical error, talk to a skilled medical malpractice lawyer right away.
