Providing Compassionate Guidance in Medical Negligence Matters
You expect your doctor, nurse, surgeon, or other professional to approach your care with sensitivity and professionalism. When medical treatment is needed for any condition, we don’t often consider that our lives will be endangered by the care administered. While most healthcare providers do care about their patients, however, it’s always possible for a doctor to act negligently and put your life at risk due to their careless actions.
At McCune Law Group, McCune Wright Arevalo Vercoski Kusel Weck Brandt APC (MLG) our experienced medical malpractice attorneys are here to stand by your side and fight for your right to compensation. We listen closely to all our clients so that we can best serve their unique needs. Our doors have been open for more than three decades, and we have a strong track record of success. Most importantly, we believe that negligent healthcare professionals should be held accountable for their actions.
Don’t hesitate to contact us at (909) 345-8110 today if you have been harmed because of medical malpractice.
Defining Malpractice: Common Medical Errors
Medical malpractice isn’t always straightforward. Multiple factors may influence how malpractice occurred, but patients rely on medical professionals to provide the best care possible. If your healthcare provider has failed to meet this standard of care, they may be liable to pay for your resulting injuries.
Some of the most common medical errors reported include:
- Causing surgical errors and “never events”
- Failing to diagnose a life-threatening condition
- Failing to monitor a patient’s vital signs
- Failing to obtain proper patient consent
- Failing to protect the life and well-being of a baby during birth
- Making prescription or medication errors
- Using a defective medical device on patients
- Emergency Room negligence
- Nursing Negligence
There are hundreds of possible examples of negligence, so it’s important to pay close attention to your own care procedures. If something feels wrong, discuss your matter with one of MLG’s seasoned attorneys for medical malpractice to learn if you qualify to bring a case.

Medical Malpractice Statistics
According to the Institute of Medicine, preventable medical errors are responsible for killing up to 98,000 Americans each year and injuring many more. Despite the vast number of medical errors, a very small percentage of injured patients file a medical malpractice lawsuit, and even fewer injured patients file frivolous claims.
An article in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), has reported that over 225,000 people die each year due to medical errors. Medical errors are the third leading cause of death in the country, behind heart disease and cancer. The most frequently occurring errors include:
- 12,000 deaths/year from unnecessary surgery
- 7,000 deaths/year from medication errors in hospitals
- 20,000 deaths/year from other errors in hospitals
- 80,000 deaths/year from infections received in hospitals
- 106,000 deaths/year from non-error, adverse effects of medication
