Preventable medical errors are a leading cause of serious injuries and death in the Untied States. Most medical malpractice arises from misdiagnoses, surgical complications and medication errors. These types of mistakes can be truly devastating to patients and their families.
Research has shown that medical malpractice most often occurs due to systematic problems, poorly coordinated care, and lack of communication between medical providers. Medical malpractice claims in West Virginia are subject to the Medical Professional Liability Act and can get complicated when dealing with this area of law. But you don’t have to navigate it alone.
