Roanoke VA Medical Malpractice
Consider a recent study measuring rates of medical malpractice nationwide, including in the Roanoke, VA, region:
According to the New England Journal of Medicine, less than 1% of doctors are responsible for nearly 33% of medical malpractice claims.
But despite evidence that medical negligence is an unreasonable risk to patients, the New England Journal of Medicine has noted that in can be difficult for medical professionals to regulate their own profession. Doctors and other health care providers face extraordinary pressure to overlook substandard care when a colleague negligently injures a patient. Or, due to the complexity of the medical industry, well-intentioned medical professionals may be unaware when a systemic problem causes harm.
That’s why the decision to pursue a claim can make a difference. If you believe a medical provider has injured a loved one, it is important to act now to get answers. Virginia law generally requires that medical malpractice cases be filed within two years of the date of negligence. A Roanoke, VA, medical malpractice lawyer can investigate what happened, talk to experts, and provide you and your family with answers.
