According to the National Institute of Health, medical malpractice kills upwards of 225,000 people per year in the United States. The most common basis for a claim relating to inpatient incidents is error during surgery and the most common claim for outpatient incidents is error in diagnosis. While many lawsuits result from medical malpractice claims, most (93%) are settled before going to trial. With a large number of hospitals in the Boston and Cambridge area, it is not surprising to learn that Massachusetts is near the top of the list in many medical malpractice categories. In the United States, there were 9,947 medical malpractice claims in 2011. During that time, Massachusetts ranked 11th in the country with 212 medical malpractice claims. The average payout for a successful claim in 2011 was $334,559, while the average claim in Massachusetts was almost twice that amount at $616,744.
