Medical malpractice occurs when a healthcare provider (a doctor, dentist, nurse, etc.) provides inadequate treatment, leading to injury. This can result from a misdiagnosis or errors during surgery. Medical negligence occurs when a healthcare provider’s actions fall below the standards of healthcare, also leading to injury. This can result from not sterilizing equipment or sending a patient home too soon.
While both a malpractice and negligence lawsuit can’t fix whatever you have lost or damaged, it can make sure the responsible parties are held accountable and that you receive the care and compensation you deserve.
