Medical Malpractice is a Leading Cause of Death in the United States

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. A 2013 study in the Journal of Patient Safety found that between 210,000 and 440,000 patients die annually at least in part because of a medical mistake. According to a 2010 report by the Department of Health and Human Services Office of the Inspector General, in the span of one year, flawed or inadequate hospital care contributed to the death of 180,000 patients in the Medicare system alone.

Medical Malpractice Deaths are Preventable

Injuries and deaths caused by medical malpractice are all the more distressing because they are preventable. At the outset of their practice, almost all American doctors take an oath to adhere to the guiding principle behind the Latin phrase primum non nocere (meaning “first, do no harm”). When doctors are negligent, they run afoul of this core principle.

People seeking care should never be injured or lose their lives because of the carelessness of medical personnel, including doctors, nurses and physician assistants.


We Handle All Types of Medical Malpractice Claims

Sometimes it is obvious when a medical error occurs. But more often, it is not at all clear to the patient or the patient’s family what exactly caused his or her condition to worsen. Too often, when patients suspect a mistake has happened, they have trouble getting answers to their questions from the hospital or medical personnel. When medical malpractice causes an injury or death, the injured person or grieving family deserves compensation for the loss. As a family-owned law firm, we understand that after such a serious event, you need someone in your corner to fight for your rights.

Misdiagnosis is one of the most common types of medical mistakes

And misdiagnosis is still believed to be severely underreported. According to a study published in the journal BMJ Quality and Safety in 2014, approximately one in 20 people seeking medical care – about 12 million people – are misdiagnosed per year, and there is the potential for severe harm in about half of those cases.

Misdiagnosis can be difficult to uncover fully without a lawsuit. When we represent you in a medical malpractice lawsuit, we will not rest until we find the facts and get you the compensation you deserve.

If I could give more stars I would

My old firm compared to BB&G was like night and day. When I called BB&G I was surprised to see that the attorney that was gonna substitute my case was Robert Briskman himself. When the insurance company saw that my firm was changed to BB&G they shaped up quickly.

If you’ve been injured… YOU MUST READ THIS

I hurt my back at work in late 2008. My injury was so serious it required surgery. Before I knew what happen, my benefits were denied, I was out of work and my surgery was denied. I've seen Briskman & Briskman commercials for years - thank goodness for that - so I gave them a call.
