Medical malpractice occurs when a hospital, doctor or other health care professional, through a negligent act or omission, causes an injury to a patient. The negligence might be the result of errors in diagnosis, treatment, aftercare or health management.
When you are ill or injured, you might turn to a doctor or other medical professional to help alleviate your pain or trauma. Typically you will see a medical professional for diagnosis, treatment, and ongoing consultation.
Medical professionals are required to abide by a standard of care or a degree of caution. In California, medical malpractice is considered a form of professional negligence where the physician or medical professional failed to conform to the applicable standard of care.
The negligence can cause severe consequences such as grave injury or lasting organ damage, paralysis, infection, advancement of diseases, or even wrongful death.
