Nearly 100,000 patients die every year from medical errors. Countless others suffer severe and permanent, life-altering injuries as a result of medical mistakes. While these numbers are alarming, research indicates that only 15 to 20 percent of all medical errors are ever reported. Therefore, the true number of medical mistakes is estimated to be much higher.
Medical mistakes should not be commonplace in our healthcare system. Reorganization of institutions and higher standards of care can help to reduce the number of medical errors. Holding medical providers accountable for their mistakes can help to raise the bar on healthcare performance, resulting in improved reliability and care.
Undertaking a medical malpractice case extends far beyond the pursuit of financial compensation. It involves accountability and recognition, which may ultimately protect others from suffering similar harm.
