It is possible that you could benefit from speaking to a medical malpractice attorney. You have undoubtedly heard of medical malpractice, but how familiar are you with the term? For example, did you know that according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, ten percent of all deaths in the United States are caused by a medical error or mistake?

Specifically, medical malpractice refers to any medical error that is preventable, meaning it should never have happened. Following the medical error, an injury generally occurs. These injuries can range in severity, and in worst case scenarios, lead to death.
