Recognizing the prevalence of medical malpractice

According to the National Practitioner Data Bank, there were more than 392,000 adverse actions reported between 2004 and 2014 in the U.S. If you reside in San Bernardino, or another city in the state of California, you should recognize just how prevalent medical malpractice is and address any violations of your rights as a patient immediately. At Kampf, Schiavone & Associates, we understand that medical professional negligence can ruin lives financially, emotionally and physically.

While medical malpractice is a serious problem across the country, it is also a major issue in California. According to the NPDB, more than 30,000 adverse actions were reported between 2004 and 2014 in this state alone. Nationwide, there were over 154,000 medical malpractice payments over the course of the same time frame. If you or a family member receive medical care, it is crucial to protect yourself and those you love.

Medical malpractice cases take many forms and each incident is different. Some involve a negligent anesthesiologist or surgeon, while others are the result of pharmacist errors. However, all incidents of medical malpractice should be taken seriously and this widespread nightmare has shattered the lives of far too many families. Sometimes, medical negligence leads to overwhelming medical costs and lost income due to missing work. Furthermore, such negligence even claims lives and leaves families with emotional pain that will follow them around permanently. As a result, it is imperative to hold medical professionals accountable for their actions.
