Malarkey is the best way to describe this article....all taken out of context for example with over a million surgeries 500 wrong body part errors is statistically meaningless. And of those how many had significant injuries. I understand this article is really a commercial but it is disingenuous to make it appear otherwise. Most malpractice cases are defensible they are based almost always on injury

Malarky? Here's what happened to our late friend Richard Flagg, who suffered and died from negligence like this: http://centerjd.org/content/memoriam-richard%E2%80%99s-obituary These kinds of errors are called "never events" because they are never supposed to happen to anyone, let alone 500 people a year. Richard fought to protect the legal rights of patients who have been victimized like he was. We were proud to call him our friend.

In Maryland, this inforgraphic shows, in a study of 12,772 cases from Q1 2015, only 49 were listed as medical malpractice: http://www.injurylawyerdatabase.com/blog/2015/04/the-medical-malpractice-crisis-myth-maryland-edition/.

That's less than 1/2 of 1%.
