What is Medical Malpractice?

Most people have heard the term ‘medical malpractice’ but many do not know what it actually is.  Briefly stated, medical malpractice is "A physician’s deviation from the applicable standard of care that a similar physician would exercise under the same circumstances."  That definition was provided by www.cliffordlaw.com/glossary.

Basically, medical malpractice means that a doctor negligently caused injuries to a patient.  If you would like more information regarding what medical malpractice is, check out this link provided by the Insurance Information Institute.
