The Truth About Medical Malpractice
According to the Journal of the American Medical Association, heart disease and cancer are this country’s number one and number two biggest killers, but number three is medical malpractice. Specifically, 200,000 people die due to medical errors every year in the U.S. Although medical malpractice appears to be very common, these trials end in a verdict favorable to the plaintiff less than one-fourth of the time according to the Bureau of Justice Statistics.
After a mistake has been made, medical professionals and executives with insurance companies work to mitigate the damages because no one wants these matters to go to court. To prevent this, the executives enter into negotiations with those who have been injured so that they can offer a settlement before the patient sees a medical malpractice lawyer. The problem is that the extent of the patient’s injuries may not be known at this point, and this information is necessary to ensure that the patient receives fair compensation.
