What is medical malpractice? Medical malpractice is a form of personal injury that occurs in the field of medicine. When a doctor, nurse, or other medical professional is negligent in their treatment of a patient, this can be qualified as medical malpractice. Failing to diagnose an illness or injury or committing an error during surgery or treatment are common forms of malpractice in medicine.
Imagine going to the doctor for a seemingly simple procedure and ending up with a permanent disability, or going in for a routine check-up and getting misdiagnosed or improperly medicated. When you go to the doctor, you place an enormous amount of trust in his or her hands. You trust that the doctor and his or her staff will diagnose you properly and will treat your illness with care while using standard, proven medical methods.
