Every year, thousands of people die because of medical malpractice. In fact, a study found that one out of every hundred people hospitalized becomes a victim because of a medical error. If you suspect that a hospital error is responsible for your injuries, you should seek advice from medical malpractice lawyers serving Washington, D.C.

As this video explains, doctors, nurses, pharmacists and other technicians can all be held responsible for medical negligence. If you received an improper diagnosis or if your doctor failed to adequately diagnose your symptoms, you may have grounds for a malpractice claim. However, proving malpractice is a fairly complex legal process. The best way to know whether or not you have a valid medical malpractice claim is by discussing your case with an attorney. If you do have a claim, your attorney can help ensure that you file within your state’s statute of limitations.
