Medical malpractice or medical negligence occurs when a doctor or other healthcare provider breaches his or her duty to a patient to perform treatment in accordance with the "standard of care."
A medical malpractice lawyer is in an area of law that assists people who have been injured by the mistakes of health care providers, or the survivors of those who may have died as a result of the mistakes of health care providers.
Medical malpractice can occur in many different ways. Some major categories include, but are not limited to: birth injuries, misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis, improper or inappropriate treatment, botched surgeries, prescription errors, failure to refer, anesthesia complications, emergency room mistakes and nursing home abuse.
