Medical Malpractice Myths Debunked

medical malpractice myths debunked snyder law group

Many patients who suffered from medical negligence do not file their claims due to confusion or misinformation

Studies have shown that medical errors account for over 250,000 deaths in the United States each year. Unfortunately, many patients who suffered from medical negligence do not file their claims due to confusion or misinformation. There are probably more myths and misunderstandings about medical malpractice claims than any other category when it comes to personal injury claims. This is a problem because myths can prevent injured patients or their loved o from seeking the settlement they deserve for their injuries. Let’s debunk some common myths about medical malpractice.

Malpractice Lawsuits are Frivolous

In actuality, most malpractice lawsuits deal with severe or fatal injuries. Victims seek compensation for the damages they have incurred due to negligence on behalf of the hospital or healthcare professional. They are not filing lawsuits for minor issues or petty reasons.

Attorneys are Too Expensive

Most personal injury attorneys specializing in medical malpractice work on a contingency fee basis, meaning that a fee is only recovered from clients if the case is successful. If the lawsuit is unsuccessful, clients are not charged for the legal services they were provided.

Medical Errors are Rare

Medical malpractice is, unfortunately, very common. Medical errors are the third highest cause of death in the United States. National health studies have shown that over 70 percent of medical errors are preventable. Common preventable medical errors include:

  • Improper medical treatments
  • Misdiagnosis
  • Failure to diagnose
  • Drug and medication errors

You Don’t Need an Attorney to File a Claim

While it is technically possible to file a malpractice claim independently, you most likely won’t get the outcome you expected. This is because medical malpractice claims must follow a set of complex laws that vary from state to state. They also require substantial evidence gathering from various sources and are required to include particular information. 

All Attorneys are the Same

The key to properly filing a claim is to find an attorney that specializes in medical malpractice.  Look for an attorney who has a history of representing plaintiffs, a network of medical experts at hand, familiarity with the medical field, and strong communication skills.
