Medical malpractice occurs when doctors, surgeons, pharmacists or hospitals injure a patient by providing care that is below what would normally be considered an acceptable standard. As patients, we put our trust and lives in the hands of medical professionals, under the assumption that they will act carefully and responsibly. Unfortunately, this is not always the case. When medical professionals perform their jobs negligently, patients are injured and may even die.
Not every case with a poor outcome is necessarily malpractice, however. Medicine is not an exact science, and despite major technological advances and even with the best quality of care, complications occasionally occur and treatments are unsuccessful. Medical malpractice arises when a healthcare professional fails to meet the minimum standard of care, resulting in damages to the patient.
