It is difficult to estimate the number of people who are injured or who suffer a wrongful death due to poor medical care and medical errors. According to NPR, an initial estimate released by the Department of Health and Human Services put the number of people killed by hospital medical errors at 98,000. Yet, a later report in the Journal of Patient Safety suggested that as many as 440,000 patients are harmed in hospitals each year. For families and victims, the effects of these injuries can be devastating, costly, and life-altering. Families have a right to seek compensation for medical malpractice. Unfortunately, without careful investigation, many medical malpractice cases go unreported, and justice is never served.
