Even with today’s highly advanced medical technology, mistakes at hospitals, including medical centers in the Detroit area, are all too common — both within and outside the operating room. Unfortunately, according to the Journal of Patient Safety, up to 440,000 patients who go to the hospital each year suffer some type of harm that contributes to their death.
In fact, hospital mistakes are the third leading cause of death in America. However, unlike the other leading causes of death — heart disease and cancer — death and injury from hospital mistakes are preventable. Those hospital mistakes are known as medical malpractice. If you have been harmed by medical malpractice, we at Goodman Acker P.C. can help you take immediate legal action.

Medical malpractice is defined as improper, unskilled, or negligent treatment of a patient by a physician, nurse, or other type of healthcare professional. When you are receiving treatment, medical professionals owe you a duty to provide competent care. Medical malpractice can occur through an act of negligence, such as an operating room error during surgery or a dosage error in a prescription medication. It can occur at any stage in the treatment process and may involve many types of hospital workers, including doctors, surgeons, anesthesiologists, nurses, pharmacists or lab technicians.
