Scott Vorhees to Appear on Four States Business Showcase

Attorney Scott Vorhees of Johnson, Vorhees & Martucci will be featured
on an upcoming edition of
Four States Business Showcase. Attorney Vorhees will discuss the widespread problem of medical errors
in modern hospitals and how individuals who are injured by negligent medical
personnel may have grounds to take legal action against the responsible
parties. You can view it
here.

Preventable medical errors are responsible for the deaths of more than
400,000 people each year and are the third-leading cause of death in the
United States behind heart disease and cancer. Mistakes such as operating
on the wrong body part,
medication errors,
misdiagnosis, leaving foreign objects inside patients, and infections from unsanitary
conditions can cause a person to suffer horrific injuries and possible
lifelong debilitation. Despite these staggering numbers, however, the
issue of declining medical care and medical negligence has gone largely
ignored in society.

The segment will detail the many ways that medical errors can occur and
how affected individuals can seek compensation with powerful legal assistance.
Be sure to keep on the lookout on the airwaves for this showcase in the
coming weeks!
