Medical malpractice cases are a subset of personal injury cases. In a medical malpractice case, the negligent party is a medical professional such as a doctor. To prove liability in a medical malpractice case, you must prove that a doctor breached the accepted “standard of care” and this breach caused damages. Damages available to a medical malpractice plaintiff are often similar to damages available in other personal injury suits, i.e, past and future medical bills, past and future pain and suffering, and loss of a normal life.
There are many types of medical malpractice cases. They can involve complications during surgery, missed diagnosis, hospital deaths, birth injuries, etc.
