Medical malpractice is an generally considered to be the act or error caused by a health care provider, physician or doctor which strays from the accepted standards of practice in the medical community and will almost always cause injury to the patient or an unfortunate death.
Approximately 80,000 people die in the United States each year due to medical malpractice. The law surrounding this type of litigation is a rapidly changing one. The insurance industry is very powerful and has lobbied aggressively against these types of lawsuits. Unfortunately, their lobby has been quite successful and has caused many states to set caps in the amount of money the victim of medical malpractice can be awarded in a trial.
What does this mean to victims of medical malpractice? Sadly, it means that negligent healthcare providers can sometimes walk away from a medical mistake without consequence. The reason this occurs is that it can now be extremely difficult for the victims of medical malpractice to find legal representation in the pursuit of these types of lawsuits. The sheer difficulty, expense and expertise needed to handle medical malpractice cases has caused a shortage in the number of law firms willing to handle them and most that previously did have moved on to practice a different type of law all together.
