According to the Journal of the American Medical Association, medical negligence is the third leading cause of death in the United States, right behind heart disease and cancer. Medical malpractice kills approximately 225,000 people each year. The most common types of medical malpractice include mistakes related to improper diagnosis, surgical errors, mistakes related to patient treatment, and medication errors. Specifically, medical malpractice includes any practice where a healthcare provider deviates from the recognized standard of care in the treatment of a patient, and that deviation results in harm to the patient.
