Today, we celebrate a great achievement – our 3,000th consecutive daily blog posting! Yes, for 3,000 days in a row, we have posted to the blog on our website, www.MedicalMalpracticeLawyers.com. All of our past (and future) blog postings are fully searchable by word or phrase – it’s likely that if you have a question or issue involving medical malpractice or a related matter, we have blogged about it!
We receive many calls on our toll-free line (800-295-3959) and through our website from people throughout the United States who have been injured during medical care who want to know if their injuries were caused by medical negligence and whether they can make a claim for the harms they suffered. Most of the time we are able to find them local medical malpractice lawyers in their state and in their local community so that they can get answers to their questions and find medical malpractice lawyers to represent them, if appropriate. Sometimes, we are heartbroken to tell them that we cannot find them medical malpractice attorneys to assist them because they may have waited too long to find a lawyer or the medical malpractice laws in their state have raised roadblocks, such as ridiculously low caps on noneconomic damages or unnecessarily high hurdles they must overcome that make it too difficult or too expensive to find the medical experts necessary to support their medical malpractice claims, especially if the extent of their injuries is relatively minor or transitory.
These so-called “tort reforms” (we prefer the more accurate term “tort deforms”) that have been enacted in many U.S. states were passed by state legislatures that were heavily lobbied by large health care special interest groups (such as large hospital systems and powerful doctors’ groups) who manufactured a “medical malpractice crisis,” arguing that the natural, cyclical rises in medical malpractice insurance premiums were due to “frivolous malpractice claims” that were causing doctors to leave their practices or move to more “doctor friendly” states (these false narratives have been disproven by objective study after study, but the public’s perception has been permanently poisoned to believe that doctors who commit malpractice and unnecessarily injure their patients should be protected from financial responsibility for their professional shortcomings).
Nonetheless, MedicalMalpracticeLawyers.com exists to provide medical malpractice victims in the United States with a free service to find medical malpractice lawyers in their U.S. state who may assist them with their medical malpractice claims. Through our daily blog postings, we attempt to provide the public with current, relevant information regarding medical malpractice and related subjects, and to keep the public advised as to threats to their right to seek and obtain fair compensation for bad medical care that caused them serious harm and that has forever changed their lives and their family’s security and tranquility – when medical malpractice causes wage earners to become disabled, they cannot support their families and they often have to rely on family members to provide them with assistance with daily activities and care. Hence, medical malpractice often does not just destroy the lives of the direct victims of bad medical care, it often devastates the lives of loved ones who then face familial caregiver burdens that medical malpractice creates.
The public has been exposed to countless and consistent messages from the health care industry that their members are being unfairly subjected to medical malpractice claims and financial exposure for their members’ wrongdoing. They blame “greedy trial lawyers” instead of addressing and focusing on patient safety – they place the interests of medical providers’ profits over the safety of their patients. Instead of taking necessary actions against their own – medical providers who repeatedly injure their patients – they seek to protect them.
The health care industry is well-organized, well-financed, and invests huge amounts of money to protect its interests. Victims of medical malpractice throughout the United States are a disparate group – they did not choose to be injured by their medical providers’ inexcusable errors. Medical malpractice victims will never be as well-organized or well-financed as those who harm them. We hope that our website and our free service can help medical malpractice victims throughout the United States find local medical malpractice lawyers who may represent them and pursue their interest in being fairly compensated for the losses they suffered through no fault of their own.
If you or a loved one may have been injured as a result of medical negligence in the United States, you should promptly find a medical malpractice lawyer in your state who may investigate your medical malpractice claim for you and represent you or your loved one in a medical malpractice case, if appropriate.
