What is Medical Malpractice?
Medical Malpractice is the failure of a health care provider to treat and care for a patient with a reasonable degree of expertise. If a physician was careless, lacked proper skills or disregarded standardized rules, a jury may find the health care provider negligent. If damages resulted from such negligence, monetary compensation may be awarded. Hospitals can also be held liable for the negligence of their employees, including staff nurses and technicians.
Medical Malpractice is common, particularly in hospitals. It can occur during various stages of care, during something as complicated as surgery or as simple as the prescribing of drugs.
