You trusted a healthcare professional to provide you or a loved one with timely and quality medical services. Now, you feel that your trust has been betrayed. You or a family member went to this doctor, or facility, for help, and all that was received in return was even more serious health problems, enormous bills, or even death. And you want to know what can be done about it.
You are not alone. Preventable medical errors kill and seriously injure hundreds of thousands of Americans every year. The Institute of Medicine's (IOM) study of preventable medical errors in Virginia malpractice laws estimated as many as 98,000 people die every year from such errors. One in three Americans say that they or a family member has experienced a medical error, and one in five say that a medical error has caused either themselves or a family member serious health problems or death.
