Medical malpractice is one of the leading causes of death in the US. For inpatient incidents, 34% of medical malpractice claims consist of surgery errors. When it comes to outpatient side, 46% of all medical malpractice claims are made up of errors in diagnosis.

As per a report issued by Journal of the American Medical Association, medical negligence is said to be the third leading cause of untimely deaths in the United States, right behind heart disease and cancer. Additionally, according to the 2016 medical malpractice payout analysis by Diederich Healthcare, malpractice payouts increased for the third year in a row in 2015. Payouts across the US totaled $3.95 million, which is an increase of 1.68% from 2014.

Most legal claims are subject to a statute of limitations. These limitations define the amount of time a person has to file a legal claim after the event has taken place. Once the time limit specified in the statute of limitations has passed, an individual may very possibly have their claim dismissed. However, some states have enacted what is known as a "discovery of harm" rule.
