Joliet Medical Malpractice Lawyers
Medical Malpractice Attorneys in Will County, Illinois
According to the American Association for Justice, preventable medical errors are the sixth biggest killer in America. On an average, 98,000 people die because of preventable medical errors every year, the keyword here being “preventable”.
The picture gets even scarier. A more recent study published in the Journal of Patient Safety says that the fatalities could be much more than reported and estimates that the actual figures could be between 210,000 and 440,000 people annually. If this estimate is true, medical malpractice would be the third biggest killer in the United States.
Although most of the doctors and medical practitioners in this country are honest and committed to the profession, cases of neglect and malpractice are a big threat in America. If you or your relatives have suffered due to medical malpractice, contact the The Law Tomczak Group. Our attorneys are skilled in handling medical malpractice cases.
