October 25, 2016 at 2:37 pm | Medical Malpractice: Serious Mistakes That Can’t Happen

When you get sick, you go to the doctor. You also go to your doctor for your annual check-up, preventative care and the flu shot.

We depend on doctors, specialists, surgeons and other medical professionals to accurately diagnose health issues and treat us. But who cares for you when your doctors make a mistake?

Here at the Law Offices of Rovner, Allen, Rovner, Zimmerman & Nash, we represent victims of medical malpractice and make sure they get the compensation they deserve. Medical malpractice can result in serious changes to your life.


According to the American Medical Association Journal of Ethics, a study estimated that between 210,000 and 400,000 people die annually in the United States due to medical mistakes. Another troubling statistic comes from the New England Journal of Medicine which states that one percent of all physicians accounted for 32 percent of paid medical malpractice claims.


Instances of medical malpractice can include:

  • Misdiagnosis
  • Surgical errors
  • Nursing mistakes
  • Failure to treat
  • Drug dispensing errors
  • Failure to diagnose cancer
  • Operating on the wrong body part
  • Failure to obtain consent for a particular procedure

Medical malpractice claims happen more with surgeons, obstetricians/gynecologists and specialty doctors than with pediatricians or family doctors, but they can occur in any medical setting.

Even celebrities such as Michael Jackson, Joan Rivers, Julie Andrews, Dana Carvey and John Ritter have been reported as victims of medical malpractice. This can happen to anyone.
