Recovering from Medical Malpractice
As tough as it is to admit this startling fact, medical malpractice is much more common than the average American believes. Despite advancements in health sciences and technology, medical malpractice has been on the rise for the past decade. In fact, malpractice is the third leading cause of death in the United States – third only to heart disease and cancer.
Types of Medical Malpractice
In the vast majority of medical malpractice cases, the personal injury inflicted isn’t usually intentional. However, you can’t really refer to the causes of these injuries as ‘innocent mistakes.’ Healthcare professionals and pharmacists are held to a standard of care because the outcomes of their choices and actions can literally mean the difference between life and death. Negligence, accidents, and ignorance are not excuses for unintentionally causing pain and suffering to another human being.
For example, a botched surgery procedure could very easily leave a patient in a worse condition than when they originally sought healthcare. Additionally, a pharmacy misfill could cause unintended chronic suffering. There are many types of medical malpractice, none of which are excusable.
