Peoria Medical Malpractice Lawyers.  Uncovering the Truth about Preventable Medical Errors and Negligence.

shutterstock_123461680-1024x685In today’s world, it is increasingly difficult to find competent and devoted representation, especially when complex medical, scientific and legal issues may combine in one case. This is especially true in litigation regarding birth defects and brain damage.

Despite public relation campaigns driven by the medical industry to the contrary, the facts are that in the United States each year nearly 100,000 Americans die as a consequence of medical mistake. The wrong patient is operated on; the wrong part of the patient is operated on; improper drugs are prescribed; non-prescribed drugs are given; instruments are left inside body cavities after surgery. Hospitals spending billions annually on new gadgets, machines, marble lobbies and beautiful facades, cut back on staffing, exposing patients to a rash of mistakes, all of which can result in significant injury or unnecessary injury or death to the patient.

Such needless neglect by companies who routinely make large profits will continue, and individual people will continue to suffer the consequences unless the cost of such harm is fairly balanced, forcing changes in behavior to provide the best chance for patient safety.
