Medical injuries can result in staggering medical expenses. They can require rehabilitation. Victims may need long-term care. They may also be unable to work costing families lost wages. The victims of medical neglect may require wheelchairs and lifts. Their homes may need to be remodeled to be handicap accessible. All of this can cost a lot of money. Medical malpractice cases are important to everyone involved.
This doesn’t include the emotional toll that such an injury can take on the victim and their family. Husbands and wives cannot think about the impact that changing roles to caretaker can have on their relationship. The pain, suffering, and mental anguish that people go through due to medical neglect can be great.
Johns Hopkins patient safety experts have calculated that more than 250,000 deaths per year are due to medical error in the U.S. The Johns Hopkins’ study numbers have medical negligence surpassing the third leading cause of death as found by the Center for Disease Control. That means that more people die from medical errors that lose their life on the roads, or at work. Only cancer and heart disease claim more lives than medical neglect. Medical errors don’t just occur in the surgical suite. Medical errors can happen in any medical setting including outpatient surgery centers, nursing homes, and PACU recovery units.
