Medical Malpractice Third Leading Cause of Death in U.S.

Did you know that in recent years, medical negligence was named the third leading cause of death in the United States, just behind heart disease and cancer? That’s a pretty shocking statistic considering millions of Americans every year put their trust in medical professionals. We expect those medical professionals to put our health and well being above everything else, and most of the time, they do. However, when a medical professional’s negligent act or behavior puts you or someone you love in harm’s way, the results can be devastating.

At Stewart & Stewart, we know that one lapse of concentration or careless act can be fatal, leaving the surviving families wondering what went wrong and what to do next, so they turn to us for help. We handle medical malpractice cases because we believe our medical professionals should be held to the hippocratic oath they took when first starting out. That standard was designed to keep patients safe within their care, and we believe they should uphold it no matter the circumstances.

If you or someone you love has been the victim of medical malpractice, give us a call for a free consultation. Our Indiana medical malpractice attorneys will fully investigate the events that led up to your injuries and hold the responsible parties accountable. You have options, and we can help. Contact us today.
