Medical Errors are Leading Cause of Deaths in the U.S.

Portner & Shure Law Firm Serving Maryland, Virginia & Washington D.C.


There is a new study by Johns Hopkins that shows that 10% of all U.S. deaths are due to medical error. We often are naïve when it comes to doctors making mistakes, when in reality, doctors make mistakes all the time and sometimes these mistakes result in death. With insurance companies taking more profits from doctors, doctors are making cuts to protect their income, and as a result, doctors are providing a diminished level of care to patients. Many doctors are now more worried about getting patients in and out rather than provided the best care possible. We can’t make healthcare great, but we can get you compensated for these dreadful errors. Call Portner & Shure today for a medical malpractice consultation.
