Video Transcript

Hi. I’m John Perconti, one of the founding partners of Levin & Perconti in Chicago. The Institute of Medicine estimates that 98,000 people are injured or killed as a result of medical malpractice every year. And this does not include the many that go unreported. When you suffer a serious injury or a loved one dies as a result of medical malpractice, you have a right to hold those providers professionally accountable. There are a number of different types of medical malpractice cases. Some of them include a failure to diagnose, a misdiagnosis of of a particular condition, surgical errors, prescription errors, hospital falls, obstetrical errors leading to birth injury, pressure sores. These are some general types of medical malpractice cases.
