Indianapolis Medical Malpractice Lawyers

Preventable medical errors are the sixth biggest killer in America. Preventable medical errors kill and seriously injure hundreds of thousands of Americans every year.

A study by the Institute of Medicine estimates as many as 98,000 people die every year at a cost of $29 billion because of preventable medical errors. Preventable medical errors are caused by medical malpractice. The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) found that there were 181,000 severe injuries attributable to medical negligence in 2003. The Institute for Healthcare Improvement estimates there are 15 million incidents of medical harm each year. HealthGrades, the nation’s leading healthcare rating organization, found that Medicare patients who experienced a patient-safety incident had a one-in-five chance of dying as a result.

While most of us do not want to believe it can happen, doctors and medical professionals do make mistakes. Occasionally these mistakes lead to serious and life-altering injuries, even wrongful death, to the patient. That is when you need an attorney experienced in medical malpractice

Despite the number of people killed and injured by preventable medical errors each year, people remain unaware of just how pervasive the problem is. Even though one in three Americans say that they or a family member has experienced a medical error, and one in five say that a medical error has caused either themselves or a family member serious health problems or death, surveys show that Americans vastly underestimate the extent of medical errors. About half of respondents believe the annual death total from medical errors to be 5,000 or less—nearly 20 times lower than the IOM’s estimate.

Medical malpractice occurs when a doctor or hospital acts negligently or fails to intervene to properly treat a patient resulting in damage or harm to a patient. A delayed diagnosis of a serious medical condition, a misdiagnosis of cancer, even a surgical error or an injury to a patient could be medical negligence. Medical mistakes can be made by physicians, anesthesiologists, nurses, technicians, residents, and even medical devices.
