One Of The Leading Causes Of Death Is Medical Malpractice
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), medical malpractice or unintentional accidents is the fourth leading cause of death in the United States. This cause of death is only preceded by heart disease, cancer and chronic lower respiratory disease.
When doctors first become physicians, they vow to “first do no harm.” Sometimes doctors are negligent or careless and a patient is harmed. If you’ve been harmed or lost a loved one due to medical negligence, you may have a medical malpractice suit.

What Is Considered Medical Malpractice?
Medical negligence means that a physician has a duty of care to give their patients. When they breach that duty of care and the patient is harmed or dies, this is considered negligence or malpractice. These injuries and deaths are sometimes referred to as unintentional injuries or accidents. Whether they were intentional or not, you may have a case for malpractice.
The physician may be held liable if medical malpractice mistakes were made such as:
- Not following standard procedures
- Missing a diagnosis
- Incorrectly prescribing medication
- Leaving a surgical implement inside a patient during an operation
- Not acting quickly enough in prescribing care
Physicians can and should be held liable for medical malpractice. If the doctor didn’t exercise the normally expected care for a patient, you may have a case for medical malpractice.
