We place a great deal of trust in our health care providers. We try to follow doctors’ advice; we take the medicine they prescribe; we place our lives in our surgeons’ hands when we go in for surgery. There is no other way to obtain medical care than to place at least some degree of trust in our doctors.
However, doctors, like the rest of us, make mistakes, and their mistakes can be extremely costly. One medical journal has stated that medical error is the third-leading killer of Americans, behind only heart disease and cancer. A study of North Carolina hospitals published in The New England Journal of Medicine found that 1 out of every 42 hospital admissions during part of the first decade of the 2000’s resulted in life-threatening injury or death due to medical error. When doctors, nurses, surgeons and other medical professionals make mistakes, people’s lives can be destroyed or ended. At Brown, Moore & Associates, PLLC, we have more than 50 combined years of experience obtaining compensation for our injured clients.Our Charlotte medical malpractice lawyers have seen many people whose lives changed for the worst because of errors committed by medical professionals.
Although there is no way to guarantee that your medical care providers will not err, some steps you can take to reduce the risk include:
