The third leading cause of death in the United States, medical negligence results when a physician or other medical professional fails to provide the standard of care that a similarly trained or experienced person would have provided and that lack of proper care harmed the patient.
Most cases result from a breakdown of communication in the healthcare system and doctors can be held accountable for their negligent actions and the damages they caused.
A majority of incidents of medical malpractice are never reported. Take the first step and contact John C. Willis IV for a free consultation regarding your case.
