How Do I Know If It was Medical Negligence?

Medical mistakes is the third-leading cause of death in America. The Office of Inspector General for the Department of Health and Human Services estimates that poor hospital care contributes to 180,000 deaths per year in Medicare patients alone. According to the Journal of Patient Safety, that number increases when considering all types of patients. The Journal reports that 210,000 to 440,000 patients die each year from medical errors. To put that staggering number in context, in 2014, the population of Kanawha County, West Virginia was 190,223.
