Consequences of Medical Malpractice
Whether the negligence that has occurred is due to an omission in treatment or procedure, or by the addition of unnecessary medication or treatment, the consequences of malpractice kill or injure approximately 195,000 people each year, according to the HealthGrades Safety in American Hospitals study.
Some consequences of medical malpractice include:
