Wilkes Barre Medical Malpractice Attorney
Medical Malpractice is the failure of medical professionals (including doctors, nurses and hospitals) to provide acceptable treatments to patients. It is the third leading cause of death in America, killing 100,000 people every year.
Some leading causes of medical malpractice include inadequate training, excessive work hours, substance abuse and errors in judgment by hospitals and medical professionals.
Patients have the right to expect safe and adequate care when seeking medical treatment, and while most doctors and hospitals never commit malpractice, others make an astonishing number of medical mistakes. Five percent of doctors and hospital staff account for more than 50 percent of the medical malpractice claims.
