Doctors spend years studying and training to learn everything there is to know about the human body and how to treat and heal the almost infinite number of illnesses and injuries which can afflict their patients. Physicians, nurses, and other healthcare professionals are highly educated and skilled, dedicated to the noble work of helping and healing. But they are also human. That means they can and do make mistakes or errors in judgment. Tragically, these failures often come with catastrophic consequences.
Hundreds of thousands of Americans suffer every year from avoidable medical mistakes. In fact, a 2016 study by researchers at Johns Hopkins University concluded that medical errors kill a quarter of a million Americans every year, making them the third largest cause of death in this country, behind only heart disease and cancer.
When those charged with healing instead cause harm because they fail to follow the appropriate standard of care or otherwise breach their responsibilities to a patient, it can constitute medical malpractice and be the basis for the recovery of compensation for the losses and suffering caused by medical negligence.

Medicine is complicated and not every poor outcome is the result of a mistake. Just knowing whether a medical error occurred can be a daunting task and it requires knowledge and training that most people, including a number of attorneys, do not possess. Recovering compensation for such mistakes also requires a level of courtroom skill and legal acumen that can only come from experience.
