We are facing a medical malpractice crisis in our country.
More than 98,000 people die every year because of preventable medical errors. That is equivalent to two 737s crashing every day for a whole year. Preventable medical errors are the sixth leading cause of death in the United States and cost our country $29 billion a year.
Lawsuits are only a symptom of the disease. The root of the medical malpractice problem is medical malpractice itself.
