Medical Malpractice: A Leading Cause of Death and Injury in Amarillo and the U.S.A.
If you are like many people, you may not realize that the third leading cause of death in the United States is medical malpractice. Deaths because of preventable medical errors and negligence are outpaced only by heart disease and cancer, according to an exhaustive study by the John Hopkins University School of Medicine. Deaths resulting from medical negligence are estimated at 250,000 while all deaths by accidents of all types, including automobile accidents, is just over 160,000, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Hundreds of thousands of individuals are injured annually as the result of preventable medical negligence.
Common Types of Preventable Medical Negligence
There is one common theme associated with all types of medical malpractice claims. A physician or other healthcare provider did something, or failed to do something, causing an injury or death that simply did not need to happen.
With that said, the most common types of Amarillo medical malpractice are:
- Failure to properly diagnose
- Failure to timely make a diagnosis
- Surgical mistake (including operating on the wrong part of the body or leaving surgical instruments inside a patient)
- Anesthesia error
- Prescription error
- Childbirth-related injuries

- Physicians assistants
