What is Medical Malpractice?
It is important to realize that every complication resulting from medical care is not necessarily considered medical malpractice. Medical malpractice law defines malpractice as negligence or omission on the part of a health care professional or institution that results in injury or death.
Many forms of negligence on the part of a medical professional can result in serious negative effects to your health. For example, many malpractice situations involve operations on the wrong body parts, forgotten surgical instruments, failure to utilize appropriate precautions, failure to notice obvious symptoms and much more. The negligence may take the form of doctor negligence, hospital negligence or other provider. The underlying theme is neglect or negligence on the part of the health care provider.
