Patient safety experts at John Hopkins estimated that more than 250,000 deaths each year in the U.S. are due to medical error, according to an analysis of data over an eight-year span. This number makes medical errors the third-leading cause of death after cancer and heart disease and, therefore, the likely cause of untold numbers of injuries or other types of harm to patients. If you believe that a hospital, medical professional, or healthcare provider has been the cause of medical negligence, our medical malpractice lawyers in Fernandina Beach want to hear from you. Contact us at 904-251-1111 or 800-251-111 today.
What is medical malpractice?
Also referred to as medical negligence, medical malpractice is when a medical professional fails to meet or follow accepted standards of care, causing harm to a patient. Every physician, nurse, pharmacist, anesthesiologist, and other medical professional is required to provide competent care. When they fail to do so and a patient is harmed, the effects for that patient can be far-reaching, even life-changing.
