Medical practitioners have some of the most rewarding professions in the world, but they are not exempt from making mistakes. Unfortunately, their mistakes can cause patients to lose their lives or suffer terrible injuries and pain. Alabama is among the number of states that have an overall unhealthy population with a small number of doctors to address these serious health concerns. Malpractice cases are encountered commonly in Alabama courts of law, in cities like Montgomery and Mobile. If your client has suffered any form of loss associated with malpractice, JD.MD can assist you with malpractice expert witness services and comprehensive case evaluations.
Medical Malpractice in Alabama
Across the state of Alabama, many of the malpractice cases occur because of substandard healthcare services. The small doctor per capita ratio contributes significantly to the rising numbers of malpractice lawsuits. Alarming and even shocking realities force many patients or relatives of patients to seek compensation, as well as justice, in a court of law. However, in order for you to win your client’s case, you need JD.MD’s medical and dental malpractice expert witness services.
Health Care in Alabama
The population of the state of Alabama is not the healthiest in the country. The life expectancy across the state is the third lowest in the country. It is no wonder that malpractice cases occur quite often, especially considering the following:
- There are just 178 doctors for every 100,000 people
- Only 25 doctors train in residency programs per 100,000 people
- Almost 15% of the population is without health insurance
- 70% of adults are either obese or overweight
- More than 13% of the population has diabetes
While the University of Alabama School of Medicine struggles to train more doctors through a new regional campus, the state continues to face increasing numbers of malpractice cases, which are due to negligence.
