OVERVIEW OF MEDICAL MALPRACTICE LAW

Did you know? The most common type of medical malpractice is also the most underreported.
Many people would be shocked to learn that medical malpractice is the third leading cause of death in the United States. But it’s an unfortunate fact. While outrageous cases of medical malpractice — an operating surgeon leaving a surgical instrument inside a patient’s body or amputating the wrong limb — naturally receive a lot of attention when they are exposed. But the most common type of medical malpractice, misdiagnosis, is not as well-known, and it can be just as deadly.
