What is medical malpractice?

When you visit a doctor or other medical professional, you should reasonably expect to be treated with all of the skills that a reasonable person in that position would exercise. This includes things like a proper diagnosis, correct treatment, and general care for your problem. However, these professionals can sometimes fail in their duties. This is called medical malpractice.

Medical malpractice can occur when a doctor acts negligently, such as by giving a wrong diagnosis or even failing to act at all. This can result in harm and even death for a trusting patient.

If you or someone you know has suffered from medical malpractice, you should speak to an attorney about your rights.
