In addition to the deeply disturbing number of deaths each year, medical malpractice is responsible for millions of serious injuries every year—including those that leave patients incapacitated or debilitated for life.
But despite all the deaths and injuries, because lay people are often in awe of doctors, less than two percent of patients or families impacted by medical, prescription, surgical, or diagnostic errors, preventable infections, and other causes ever file a claim against those 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 practitioner 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.
