Medical malpractice is a legal term that describes when a medical professional or healthcare provider fails to provide care that meets accepted standards of practice. When a medical professional’s negligence causes injury or death, it may be grounds for a medical malpractice lawsuit.
What Is Malpractice?
Malpractice is any act or omission of a medical professional that falls below the accepted standard of care and results in injury or death to a patient. Medical malpractice can involve a misdiagnosis, surgical errors, medication error, birth injury, failure to diagnose or delay in diagnosis, or any other medical mistake that causes harm to a patient.
