Medical Negligence is the Third Leading Cause of Death in the United States

According to the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), medical negligence is the third leading cause of death in the United States, right behind heart disease and cancer.

What is alarming is that medical negligence occurs even though family members have been diligently attending to the care of their loved one and inquiring of the doctors about important developments.

At the Robenalt Law Firm, we’ve handled cases of medical negligence against University Hospitals of Cleveland, the Cleveland Clinic and other medical providers in Ohio and Florida.

We’ve handled cases that involve birth trauma and delays in calling for a cesarean section, medication errors, failure to diagnose cancer, and failure to diagnose emergency medical conditions that required immediate care. Often times, attending physicians rely upon inexperienced residents, physicians assistants and nurses to provide care when the patient is in dire straits.
