When Should You File a Claim for a Medical Negligence Compensation?

Medication Negligence Compensation Do you the right to file for a clinical negligence claim? If you have reason to believe that you received medical care that evidently falls way behind the acceptable standards and that such negligence has caused you additional damage, injury and suffering, then you may have to consult a medical malpractice attorney immediately.

It is interesting to note that the number of deaths associated with preventable medical errors is on the rise. According to a study conducted by HealthGrades, an independent health care ratings company, such negligence resulted in about 195,000 deaths annually between the year 2000 and 2002. Additionally, the Institute of Medicine reported that medication errors harm about 1.5 million people in the US each year. Considering these figures, it is easy to see that health care negligence is becoming quite rampant.

Forms of Clinical Negligence

Clinical negligence may take on a number of forms and may include failure to diagnose and general health care negligence.
