Medical Negligence

Medical negligence or medical malpractice occurs where a patient of a doctor, hospital or other healthcare or medical professional receives substandard medical care or healthcare, which leads to a new injury or progression and worsening of a pre-existing medical condition. It can happen in several ways, due to misdiagnosis or delay in diagnosis of an illness or a medical condition, being given incorrect treatment or not being warned about the consequences of the proposed treatment or alternative treatment options, as well as due to mistakes or errors that are made before, during or after surgical procedures.
