When you need medical help, the last thing you need to be worrying about is your healthcare provider, surgeon, anesthesiologist or other medical professional making a mistake. Yet medical errors occur every day and cause serious injury, even death. 

Whether through acts of omission (failure to act) or commission (taking the wrong action), deaths resulting from medical mistakes have been estimated at more than 400,000 each year, over 160,000 occurring in hospitals alone. Medical errors now rank as the third leading cause of death in the United States. 

There is a reasonable standard of care every patient has a right to expect. Victims of medical malpractice and their families deserve reparation for their suffering and injuries that many times have changed their life.
