Medical malpractice refers to cases in which the negligence of a medical professional causes an injury or death. Failure to provide the acceptable standard of medical care can include, among other things, improper diagnosis or treatment, inadequate prenatal care, surgical errors, incorrect administration of medications, failure to get informed consent, breach of doctor-patient confidentiality, and inadequate training of medical staff.
Depending on the situation, those who are the victims of medical malpractice might be entitled to compensation for medical expenses, lost wages or decreased earning potential, disfigurement or disability, and pain and suffering.
