What is Medical Malpractice?
When a healthcare provider causes injury to a patient by performing or neglecting to perform an act that deviates from the norms of care, this is known as medical malpractice. Strict criteria must be met in order for a case to classify as medical malpractice.
Our experienced medical malpractice attorneys at Taylor King Law in Springdale, AR can help you determine whether you have a medical malpractice claim to pursue.
Medical Malpractice in Northwest Arkansas
It’s not comfortable to consider the statistics regarding medical malpractice, but according to John Hopkins University researchers, medical error claims more than 251,000 lives each year. Medical malpractice is the third leading cause of death in the United States, making it more deadly than respiratory disease, stroke, and “accidents” such as car wrecks.
Moreover, injuries resulting from medical malpractice occur at an estimated 40 times the death rate. Despite such staggering numbers, as patients, parents, spouses, and caretakers, it’s important to understand how frequently medical malpractice may occur.
