According to recent studies, medical negligence annually results in between 44,000 and 98000 preventable deaths. The number of severe injuries due to medical malpractice has been estimated to be in excess of 1 million per year in US hospitals. In a 2009 study, 20 percent of responding physicians admitted they did not disclose to their patients mistakes that had occurred to avoid a possible lawsuit.
