As Californians deal with the cost of rising healthcare, including the cost of health insurance, many medical providers and politicians would like nothing better than to convince us that lawsuits against negligent doctors, hospitals and surgeons are responsible for these rising costs. However, as statistics show, this is not the truth. In fact, many studies put those costs at 5-10% whereas medical costs are increasing at a rate of 15% each year. Other reports estimate the number of hospital deaths due to preventable medical error at between 100,000 and 200,000 per year. This is a serious problem.
