Medical Malpractice

Menstuff® has information on Medical Malpractice.

Recognizing Malpractice

Each year, approximately 225,000 people die in the United States because of medical malpractice, including sub-standard care, negligence, and patient abandonment.

Hospital and Surgical Care

While only 2% of medical malpractice victims seek legal action, it is believed that as many as 98,000 people die in hospitals each year because of medical error or negligence.

The Cost of Medical Malpractice

Medical health providers in the U.S. will pay as much as $7 billion this year for malpractice liability. For victims, the cumulative cost will be 4 times greater, at approximately $28 billion.

State Malpractice Laws

When determining whether or not you have been the victim of medical malpractice by your physician, hospital or other health care provider, you should be fully aware of not only your rights but also your state's laws – including statutes of limitations and maximum damage awards – as they may vary from other states.

Knowing Your Patient Rights

If you have been treated by a physician, hospital or medical care center and feel that you have suffered additional injuries or illnesses as the result of negligence or misdiagnosis, you have the right to discuss your situation with an attorney. By not saying something, you could be doing yourself more harm.
