New York (I-Newswire) January 22, 2014 - Mistakes and errors are made in every profession. However, mistakes in certain lines of professions, such as medicine, can lead to serious injuries and death. More specifically, according to an article on, mistakes and errors made in the diagnosis of patients account for an alarming rate of injuries and death, as well as the costliest type of medical malpractice claims.

The article further noted that 28 percent of all medical malpractice claims paid out in the past 25 years were due to some type of misdiagnosis of patients. Additionally, it was noted that these types of medical errors were more prevalent than other types of medical errors, including both treatment and surgical errors.

"And since any steps you take following the incident can significantly impact your claim, it is imperative that you know what to do if you are further injured due to medical errors or mistakes."
