Mammograms, PSA tests, ultra sounds, CT scans: There’s a medical test for almost any physical illness, but there’s no test that ensures that your doctor takes the time to carefully listen—really listen— to your symptoms and concerns.
When doctors don’t listen, mistakes can be made and there are terrible consequences.
Every year, nearly 100,000 people suffer injuries, or even die, as a result of medical malpractice. That’s nearly 50 % more people than are injured or killed in car accidents.
Medical malpractice occurs anytime a healthcare professional’s actions or inactions cause an injury or death. Examples of medical malpractice are failure to diagnose a condition or disease, surgical errors, and birth injuries like cerebral palsy and Erb’s palsy. Failure to diagnose or maintain a standard of care may lead to wrongful death in certain cases.
