Medical malpractice can be generally defined as treatment that falls short of accepted standards of care. In some cases it involves well-meaning doctors and nurses who make mistakes; in others it involves carelessness that defies imagination and invokes fear of what our health care system has become.
When a patient places his or her trust in a health care provider or facility to provide proper treatment, he or she is in a vulnerable position. When that trust is violated and an injury occurs as a result of negligent care, a medical malpractice suit may be an appropriate course of action. In some cases, injured patients and their families are entitled to compensation for their pain and suffering, income loss and other damages.
