How Can A Medical Malpractice Attorney Help Me?
As patients, we trust our doctors and nurses to follow the rules. We trust our hospitals to have policies and procedures in place to ensure that we are protected from harm. We have a right to expect a professional level of care from all of our medical providers, and we are fortunate to have a high level of care overall in the United States.
Unfortunately, when a medical professional does not take the proper steps to ensure patient safety, patients can pay with their health and sometimes their lives. In the United States alone, medical malpractice is responsible for an estimated 1.3 million injuries and over 100,000 deaths every year. The results to an individual can be catastrophic. A life care plan for someone who suffers a permanent disability can run into millions of dollars in lost wages and medical care, and Lopez McHugh medical malpractice attorneys have settled cases for as much as $13 million for a missed diagnosis that resulted in disability.
An honest mistake or unforeseeable complication is not grounds for a lawsuit, but avoidable incidents occur and keep happening because they often go unreported, or worse, are covered up. This is the reason you need medical malpractice attorneys who are advocates for patient safety and have the experience, dedication, and resources required to hold the medical industry accountable.
