Our law firm has both the deep experience and the resources needed to challenge the insurance companies and healthcare corporations that defend medical malpractice suits. Our trial attorneys have successfully litigated many of these cases and have tried many to verdict. If you or a member of your family has suffered as a result of medical malpractice, then you should be fairly compensated for the injury or loss.
Medical malpractice cases are typically both complex and very expensive. State laws generally favor healthcare providers over patients. Many physicians are reluctant to testify against other physicians. Lawsuits against physicians, nurses and hospitals are aggressively defended by very experienced attorneys with substantial resources. Despite all of this, Ogborn Mihm’s medical malpractice attorneys have obtained many multi-million dollar verdicts for our clients. If you believe or someone in your family has been the victim of the negligence of a physician, nurse, hospital or other healthcare provider, call us for a free consultation.
Medical Errors are Now the Third Leading Cause of Death in the U.S.
A recent study by the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine revealed that medical errors claim approximately 251,000 lives each year in the U.S. Medical mistakes now kill more Americans than accidents, respiratory disease, and strokes. And this doesn’t include the hundreds of thousands of people who suffer life-altering injuries caused by medical errors. Many people are unnecessarily killed or injured by the very professionals they trust with their lives. The physician who led the research said that, “[i]t boils down to people dying from the care that they receive rather than the disease for which they are seeking care.”
What is Medical Malpractice?
Medical malpractice, also called “medical negligence,” occurs when physicians, nurses or hospitals break the rules or basic principles of their profession and injure the patient. The rules can be contained in written protocols or procedures, medical texts or journals, or may be what medical professionals learn as part of their education and training. When a patient is harmed as a result of not following these rules, the doctor, nurse or hospital should be held accountable.
