Medical Malpractice is currently the third leading cause of death of United States. A recent study conducted by Johns Hopkins Hospital found that medical error causes 250,000 deaths per year in this country. In our experience, the poor and minority groups are the ones most impacted by medical negligence, as numerous statistics confirm that these groups do not receive the same quality of medical care in our healthcare system as non-minority groups. At the Magna Law Firm, we are committed to not only stemming the tide of medical negligence, but also doing so in way that promotes racial equality under the law in our health care system.
Medical malpractice or negligence occurs when a healthcare provider, in acting or failing to act, does not comply with the standard of care in the pertinent medical field. It includes misdiagnosis, failure to provide appropriate treatment, delay of treatment, surgical errors, failure to accurately read test results, medication errors or when a patient is not adequately monitored while in the hospital. If you or someone you know has been the victim medical malpractice, please contact our law firm immediately. The sooner an investigation can begin, the better the chances for a successful case.
