Medical malpractice is more common than you might think. A study published in 2018 suggested that medical error causes around 10% of all deaths in the U.S.! Although that figure has been contested, it’s still important for people to be aware of the fact that medical errors resulting in serious injuries, illnesses, and deaths are a possibility every time they’re treated or operated on.
Unfortunately, many victims of medical malpractice feel they have no recourse afterward. That’s because hospitals and doctors frequently deny responsibility or suggest that the bad outcomes were unavoidable. And to make matters worse, healthcare providers and facilities are extremely well protected from medical malpractice claims.
Trying to get compensation on your own can be extremely difficult. Even having a lawyer on your side is no guarantee, especially when the lawyer doesn’t have much experience or a track record of success winning medical malpractice claims. But at Lowell Stanley Injury Lawyers, we know exactly what it takes to get good outcomes for our clients.
