What Is Medical Negligence?

Whether you are undergoing routine medical care or major surgery, you expect your care provider to follow all appropriate procedures. Unfortunately, this is sometimes not the case.

When a person is failed by a care provider in medical treatment or in the distribution of medications, that person has been a victim of medical malpractice. Medical malpractice can lead to minor injuries such as an allergic reaction to medication, or major ones, such as an operation performed on the wrong site. Learn more by watching this video.
