Physicians and dentists both practice professions that require extensive knowledge and training. When they make mistakes, patients suffer and in some cases, may lose their lives. Densely populated hubs such as Gulfport and Jackson in Mississippi have their share of malpractice lawsuits. If you have a client who has been a victim of malpractice, JD.MD is the place for medical and dental malpractice expert witness services, as well as unbiased and reliable case evaluations. Our services can help your clients receive the best possible compensation for their loss.
Medical Malpractice in Mississippi
In Mississippi, most medical and dental malpractice involves negligence. Although accidents do occur in the health care system, the majority of malpractice cases are due to acts that deviate from the accepted standards of practice across the medical community. Statistics are alarming when it comes to the preventable errors that ultimately lead to the injury of patients. However, it is difficult to win dental and medical malpractice cases in Mississippi without the help of highly trained and qualified malpractice experts, such as the JD.MD team.
Health Care in Mississippi
Mississippi is not the most populated state in the U.S.; however, the populations of Gulfport and Jackson – the state’s economic and social hubs – have been rising in recent years. Thousands of doctors practice across the state, but only some are trained to deliver high caliber health care. This is why patients often fall victim to medical or dental malpractice. Here are a few interesting facts about the state of Mississippi and its health care:
- There are 159.4 doctors per 100,000 people, which rank Mississippi among the top 10 states with the lowest doctor rate per capita.
- Approximately 18.2% of the population does not have health insurance.
- Life expectancy is around 75 years, which is the lowest in the U.S.
- Approximately 12.4% of the population suffers from diabetes, while 68.8% are overweight or obese.
Mississippi definitely needs more doctors. With very few physicians attending to the state’s population, many medical or dental malpractice victims find themselves seeking justice for the injuries and pain they have experienced. JD.MD provides medical malpractice expert witness services for your clients, who have suffered from an accident or negligence during medical or dental treatment.
