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

Who is Responsible for Medical Malpractice?

A primary task of an Amarillo medical malpractice lawyer is ensuring that all parties responsible for causing a patient’s injuries or death are brought to justice. The reality is that in the vast majority of medical malpractice case, multiple parties will bear at least some legal responsibility for causing injuries or death. A skilled, committed Amarillo medical malpractice lawyer is vital to ensuring that all necessary parties are held fully responsible for their negligent or reckless conduct.

With that said, examples of individuals and other parties commonly held responsible in medical malpractice claims include:

  • Physicians
  • Nurses
  • Physicians assistants
  • Anesthesiologists
  • Other healthcare providers
  • Hospitals
  • Medical clinics

Justice and Compensation in a Medical Malpractice Claim

Justice demands that you obtain fair compensation in your Amarillo medical malpractice case. Compensation in a medical malpractice case depends upon the facts and circumstances surrounding the negligent conduct of a physician or other healthcare providers, together with the nature and extent of injuries you sustained.

With that said, examples of the types of losses for which our firm tirelessly fights to obtain compensation for our clients include:

  • Medical bills and expenses
  • Pain and suffering
  • Permanent disability
  • Permanent disfigurement
  • Mental anguish and emotional distress
  • Lost income

  1. After an accident, the responsible party's insurance company may try to reduce the claim amount. Commonly, insurance adjusters are trained to get information from the injured to assist in reducing the claim. Though some insurers are less guilty of this practice than others, it is important to realize that insurance companies are profit-oriented corporations and reducing claims results in increased profits for shareholders. This can create a situation for the injured in which they are offered a settlement that does not truly reflect the damages suffered. If you accept this settlement, you lose the ability to get more money should your injuries require further medical treatments. It is critical that victims get legal assistance in any personal injury case, and The Doan Law Firm is prepared to fight relentlessly for your rights.
