According to research published in 2010 in The New England Journal of Medicine, one in every seven patients is injured by avoidable and needless hospital mistakes in the United States. An estimated 272 people per day die in America as a result of needless mistakes made by health care practitioners. That is the equivalent of crashing one fully loaded commercial jumbo jet every day and killing everyone on board. It is a national disgrace. Since 1986, Henderson Taylor Law Firm has been helping clients in the Vancouver area file medical malpractice lawsuits and win compensation. If you are ready to hold a negligent medical practitioner or healthcare company responsible for the suffering you endured, contact our office today to get started.
When Hospitals and Medical Providers “Lawyer Up”
When people are injured or killed by medical mistakes, the hospitals and doctors and their insurance companies often do not want to take responsibility for their errors. They hire expensive lawyers and junk science “experts” to delay and deny even the most obvious cases of medical negligence when the victims or their families seek some sort of justice through the only method available to them – the American civil justice system. They create the myth of a “lawsuit crisis,” paint the negligent providers as victims of greedy plaintiffs and their dishonest lawyers, and demand that they get special treatment which amounts to immunity for their needless mistakes that harm people. Do you think we would give immunity to the airline or aircraft industry if an airliner was crashing every single day and killing everyone on board? Of course, the vast majority of doctors and hospitals and other health care providers are cautious, prudent and careful. Studies show that most medical malpractice is the result of acts by a small number of providers who are allowed to continue to practice medicine despite a history of poor performance. If you or a loved one have been injured due to the negligent actions of a healthcare worker, Henderson Taylor Law Firm is here to help you pursue justice.
