Medical Malpractice

 

malpracticeMedical Malpractice or negligence on the part of a hospital, nursing home or healthcare provider  can be a very common accident that results in a needless death or a catastrophic injury that requires around the clock monitoring for the balance of the victim’s life. We are dedicated to the proposition that a victim of medical malpractice or their family receives the best possible compensation.

The Journal of Patient Safety recently published a study which concluded that as many as 440,000 people die each year from preventable medical errors in and out of hospitals, deaths from missed diagnoses or because of injuries from medications.

If you are a innocent victim or a loved one of a victim seriously injured at a workplace, innocently involved in any type of catastrophic passenger vehicle accident, or a victim, or the family of extreme medical malpractice please call the Accident Victims Center immediately.  866-714-6466
