If you or a loved one has been hurt because of medical malpractice, you shouldn’t wait before speaking with a Dallas trial lawyer from Aldous \ Walker.
Medical Malpractice Statistics
According to the HealthGrades Patient Safety in American Hospitals study, about 100,000 Americans every year are killed due to preventable medical mistakes that occur in hospitals. Note that this statistic just covers people killed in hospitals. People who die as a result of medical care after they leave the facility are not included in this figure.
Some data suggests that the total number of Americans killed by medical malpractice is closer to 200,000. This does not even account for the thousands of preventable illnesses and injuries caused by medical malpractice.
Attorney Charla Aldous discusses her claim against Medical City Hospital.
