Medical Malpractice Is a Leading Cause of Wrongful Death

The depth of experience that our law firm offers means we can handle even the most complicated wrongful death cases, such as those involving death caused by medical malpractice. In recent years, studies have shown that medical mistakes are a much greater problem than was previously thought. According to a recent study in the Journal of Patient Safety, between 210,000 and 440,000 patients die each year at least in part because of preventable medical errors. This makes medical mistakes the third leading cause of death in the United States, behind only heart disease and cancer.

Negligence on Roads and Highways Causes Thousands of Deaths every year

We can also handle cases in which a life has been lost due to the negligence of a motor vehicle driver. Auto accidents are a major cause of death in the United States, with more than 30,000 fatalities occurring each year, according to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. In Illinois, there are nearly 1,000 highway deaths per year, with 991 occurring in 2013, according to the Illinois Department of Transportation
