Thousands of patients are exposed to unnecessary medical procedures every year in the United States. According to the National Practitioner Database, since 2005, more than 1,000 doctors have attempted to settle medical malpractice claims brought against them for surgical errors. Recently, high profile cases of unnecessary surgeries have made national news.

Former patients and surviving family members are suing three Indiana heart surgeons for performing surgery and installing pacemakers on patients who did not need them. After a 33-year-old man died on his way home from the hospital, a grieving mother has filed a wrongful death suit against the hospital that allowed the procedure. Other patients have had permanent health problems because of their heart surgeries.

Why Should I Hire An Attorney If I Have Been A Victim of An Unnecessary Medical Procedure?

Holding the medical industry accountable for malpractice can be extremely difficult for someone without the expertise and experience dealing with hospital administration, medical files and finding experts to help build a testimony capable of obtaining a settlement that can help you recover.
