Medical Mistakes

Medical mistakes that require medical malpractice claims continue to happen in increasing numbers.
The medical industry is failing miserably in "policing itself", and recent laws make it difficult for injured patients to seek justice. Without malpractice claims injured patients have nowhere to seek justice for medical mistakes.

Medical Mistakes Continue

In a recent medical mistake case, urologist Dr. Steven Ash, a surgeon at Baylor Medical Center in Grapevine, was fined by the Texas State Board of Medical Examiners for the serious medical mistake of removing the wrong kidney from a patient.

The Problem with the Medical Industry Policing Itself

The big problem is the fallacy that the medical industry does and will continue to police itself. In the case of the wrongfully removed kidney, the Texas State Board of Medical Examiners only fined Dr. Ash $3,000. Where is the justice for the wronged patient? Is a kidney only worth $3,000?

Are Medical Malpractice Claims Necessary

Without medical malpractice claims, wronged patients will have no place to go to seek justice for injury or death due to medical negligence. Physicians will have little reason to fear making medical mistakes, even major medical mistakes that could cause permanent injury or death. Certainly $3,000 is not a punishment to a surgeon . . . it's merely pocket change.
