When most people think of a personal injury case, they think of a vehicle accident or a slip and fall. However, one of the most common forms of personal injury cases relate to medical malpractice and medical errors. Healthcare in the United States is always under heavy criticism for being an over consuming industry that is eating up nearly 20% of the United State’s gross domestic product. However, another glaring issue within the United States Healthcare system is the startling number of medical errors occurring each year. For these reasons, Rand Spear is now taking medical malpractice cases in Philadelphia, PA, for July 2013.
Thankfully, those who live in the greater Philadelphia area have access to some of the best healthcare providers in the country. In fact, Pennsylvania Hospital, Jefferson University Hospital, and the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia are all listed as some of the nation’s top hospitals. That being said, there is no denying the fact that each year close to 50,000 medical errors are leading to fatalities in the United States. Some researchers even found that 100,000 medical errors may be an extremely low estimate.
Rand Spear, a personal injury attorney in Philadelphia, is also urging their customer base to read reviews and talk to people about their previous experience with a healthcare provider. Asking family and friends about a healthcare provider might be the best indicator as to whether the quality of care is acceptable. It is also important to evaluate one’s health insurance benefits and select the appropriate providers within that network. Whenever a medical error has lead to some sort of harm, feel free to contact one of the staff members at Rand Spear to discuss all options.
