Unfortunately, there is a common sentiment in the country that medical malpractice claims are frivolous and made up. Often times, the public believes a patient is seeking a quick pay day. This could not be further from the truth. No one is perfect—even medical professionals. Often, when medical professionals make an error, it results in some of the most severe damage because the victim is already sick or vulnerable. Medical malpractice cases are not only complicated from a legal perspective, but they are also complicated from the public opinion perspective. Tort reform, the general term for changing laws related to personal injury and insurance, has heavily targeted medical malpractice claims and there is a vast amount of misinformation about medical malpractice claims in general. These injuries are real, they are severe, and the suffering of injury victims is immense.
