Medical malpractice occurs when a patient is harmed because of a negligent act or omission by a doctor or other medical professional. Negligence by a medical professional may include errors in diagnosis, treatment, or illness management. According to a recent report by HealthGrades, medical errors by hospitals harm up to one in 25 patients admitted to the hospital. This number would be even higher if researchers at HealthGrades factored in mistakes at nursing homes, outpatient settings and doctors' offices. As Dr. Samantha Collier, vice president of medical affairs at HealthGrades puts it, "the equivalent of 390 jumbo jets full of people are dying each year due to likely preventable, in-hospital medical errors, making this one of the leading killers in the United States."
If you are injured while on property that belongs to someone else, the property owner can be held responsible if the accident was caused by his own negligence. Property owners have a legal responsibility to ensure that their premises are safe for guests, customers, clients, employees, and other visitors. Under premises liability law, victims can seek compensation for their hospital bills, lost wages, and other expenses. A personal injury accident attorney at our practice can guide you through every step of the judicial process.
