What Is Medical Malpractice? 

Medical malpractice refers to a situation where a healthcare professional, such as a doctor, nurse, or medical institution, fails to provide the expected level of care and treatment to a patient, resulting in harm, injury, or even death. It involves negligence or a breach of the standard of care that medical professionals are expected to uphold.

To have a medical malpractice case, it is not enough to simply show that you sought treatment and were not healed. It is not even enough to show that your condition worsened after you sought treatment. Instead, you must show that the medical provider from whom you sought treatment somehow failed to uphold the standard of care. In other words, you must prove that the medical provider either failed to act in a way that another qualified medical provider would have acted or acted in a way that another qualified medical provider would not have acted in the same or similar circumstances.
