Defining Medical Malpractice Law

Medical malpractice occurs when a patient suffers harm due to the negligent actions or inactions of a medical professional. This video takes a closer look at medical malpractice and how you can tell whether your case is legitimate.

A physician, anesthesiologist, or pharmacist may be found guilty of medical malpractice if their conduct falls below the generally accepted standards of care and result in treating you. Examples include failure to diagnose a condition properly, errors during treatment, and improper medication prescriptions.
