Lawsuits for Injuries Caused by Physician Negligence or Carelessness
Medical malpractice is a specific area of personal injury law that describes negligent or careless actions of medical professionals such as doctors, surgeons, nurses, pharmacists and others. Medical negligence can often wrongfully be labeled as simply an adverse event. By labeling a death, injury or worsened medical condition as an "adverse event," the medical practitioner is removing any cause for liability. Medical malpractice is a type of professional negligence. Doctors owe their patients a duty of care which involves fulfilling their role and providing care that meets the accepted standard of practice.
It is estimated that anywhere between 15,000 and 19,000 medical malpractice suits are brought against doctors annually.
