About Medical Malpractice
Medical malpractice is negligence on the part of a healthcare provider and may occur by act or omission. Instances involving care that deviates from accepted professional standards of practice can result in major injury to the patient. In some cases, a newborn child can die as a result of medical mistakes made by a doctor or nurse. Depending upon the country (and jurisdiction within countries) that the medical malpractice should occur, standards and regulations are subject to vary. Healthcare professionals must maintain professional liability insurance, which offsets both risk and costs of medical malpractice lawsuits.
