Medical Malpractice is a part of personal injury law that deals with injuries suffered because a doctor, hospital or other health care provider was careless or negligent in treatment. Malpractice describes a situation where a doctor, hospital or other health care provider did not provide treatment consistent with customary and acceptable practices.
The doctor or health care provider did not follow the standard procedure that everyone is supposed to follow for that type of situation; or the doctor or health care provider did not diagnose or tell a patient that cancer or some other terminal illness was present; or the doctor or health care provider did not test for or diagnose birth injuries such as cerebral palsy or spina bifida.
