Whatever else we're doing with Michigan healthcare, we're certainly keeping the lawyers busy.

I was curious, so I went searching. This summary comes from Sommers Schwartz, a medical malpractice group.

How does Michigan compare to medical malpractice claims nationwide?

Payments were made in 244 Michigan cases in 2022. In total claims, Michigan ranked 10 of 59 US states and territories; in per capita claims, Michigan ranked 28 of 59.

The most common medical malpractice claims in the United States in 2020 were failure to diagnose and improper performance. These were also the top two bases for medical malpractice claims in Michigan in 2020.
