What is Medical Malpractice?

Medical Malpractice is otherwise known as professional negligence by a health care provider in which the treatment provided, or lack thereof, caused harm, injury or even death to a patient. It is important to understand that experiencing a bad outcome from medical care does not always mean that professional negligence has occurred.

Medical Malpractice includes three components: (1) a violation of the standard of care (2) an injury that was caused by the negligence (3) the injury resulted in significant damages. For the case to be sustainable, all three of these components must exist. Each year in the United States, an estimated 200,000 patients die as a result of medical errors, with only 15% of personal-injury lawsuits filed involving Medical Malpractice.
