The Institute of Medicine reports that each year, more than 98,000 Americans die because of medical mistakes. Many more suffer permanent and serious injuries. These stunningly high rates of medical errors "resulting in deaths, permanent disability and unnecessary suffering" are simply unacceptable in a medical system that promises first to "do no harm."
According to a report by the National Academies' Institute of Medicine, the nation's health care industry has failed in its ability to provide safe, high-quality care consistently to all Americans. Reorganization and reform are urgently needed to fix what is now a disjointed and inefficient system.
The majority of medical errors do not result from individual recklessness, the report says, but from basic flaws in the way the health system is organized. Thus, not every bad outcome means that malpractice was committed. How are you supposed to know the difference?

We have successfully handled these cases throughout the United States. We also have unique resources to assist in evaluating and handling medical malpractice cases.
