Overview of Medical MalpracticeMedical malpractice is a broad legal practice that boils down to a healthcare provider committing one or more errors leading to one or more injuries suffered by a patient. You can interchange negligence with malpractice and still have the same type of legal case. To prove malpractice, our team of experienced litigators demonstrates the healthcare provider responsible for your well-being violated the universally accepted guidelines for delivering medical care. You should note that an unfavorable outcome for a surgery or another type of medical procedure is not the same thing as medical negligence.
