At Shapiro Law Team, we are ready and able to gather all evidence, compile it into a strong case, and present it to secure you the maximum compensation. Leave it all to us; all you need to worry about is recovering and spending time with you and your loved ones after a medical malpractice case.

How Often Do Medical Malpractice Cases Arise?

Research from Johns Hopkins University shows that medical errors are the third leading cause of death in the U.S. Approximately 250,000 people lose their lives each year due to preventable medical errors. These fatalities only show a part of the overall picture, however.

Research has further shown medical mistakes harm millions of people yearly. Most people who experience medical malpractice survive, but it does not negate their hardship. Those who are victims of a medical error may experience a significant amount of suffering—including hospitalizations, corrective surgical procedures, physical therapy, or even permanent disability.
