Medical malpractice is the professional negligence of a healthcare provider or professional that caused the medical treatment provided to be substandard and lead to injury, harm, or even death. In many cases, medical negligence or malpractice involves a medical error, possibly in the medication dosage, diagnosis, treatment, health management, or aftercare. The error might also be caused by the lack of action, such as an act of omission, or a negligent act.
Patients can recover compensation for any injuries, losses, or harm caused by a sub-standard treatment or medical malpractice. A doctor, hospital, clinic, or any other health care professional might be held legally responsible for the harm suffered by a patient that was caused by the deviation from the quality of care a competent doctor should provide.
