The startling truth is that every year, medical malpractice claims more lives than breast cancer, car accidents, and AIDS – combined. Another 1.3 million patients are injured by prescription drugs and medication errors.
Injuries resulting from doctor negligence are often the most difficult to accept. After all, medical professionals swear to do no harm, to protect their patients from life’s ills. But doctor negligence, unfortunately, occurs – and this form of medical malpractice can have life-changing consequences.

- Anesthesia error
- Surgical error
- Nursing home abuse
- Delay in or failure to diagnose a medical condition
- Birth injury
- Pharmacy malpractice
