What is medical malpractice?

Medical malpractice is an act, or failure to act, by a medical professional that deviates from accepted practice and results in personal injury or the wrongful death of a patient. It is a complex area of law involving birth injury, misdiagnosis, failure to diagnose, surgical injury, emergency room negligence, and nursing home abuse.

Medical malpractice occurs when a healthcare professional fails to do what a reasonably careful and similarly licensed professional would have done in the same situation.

If a patient falls victim to a known risk associated with a procedure, he or she may not have a viable malpractice suit; however, physicians have an obligation to discuss such risks, as well as the relative chances of success or failure, prior to the procedure. Failure to do so is considered negligence.
