Medical malpractice is a serious problem that contributes to thousands of deaths — and thousands more injuries — every year. In fact, medical mistakes are one of the leading causes of death nationwide.
There is no excuse when doctors, nurses or other health care practitioners are negligent. With patients' lives literally in their hands, they should be held accountable for preventable errors.
