In addition to the deeply disturbing number of deaths, medical malpractice is responsible for millions of serious injuries every year—including those that leave patients incapacitated or disabled for life.
But because people are often in awe of doctors, less than two percent of patients and families suffering as a result of medical, prescription, surgical, or diagnostic errors, preventable infections, and other causes ever file a claim against the health care practitioners who are at fault.
If you or a family member has been severely injured as a result of medical malpractice or if someone you love has been killed because a doctor, nurse, anesthesiologist, pharmacist, or other health care provider has made a mistake, don’t allow your respect for the medical profession stop you from seeking the justice you deserve and the compensation you need. In order to protect your rights, you should contact the experienced legal team at Betras, Kopp, and Markota the moment you believe medical malpractice has occurred.
Why is it important to contact BKM? Because the devastating physical emotional, psychological, and financial effects of medical errors can last years, even decades.
