Medical malpractice can occur in a number of scenarios. Perhaps a medical professional follows procedure incorrectly, prescribes the wrong medication or course of treatment. A doctor or surgeon could use incorrect techniques or make the wrong diagnosis. Victims of this type of negligence often face injury, illness, or even death. The error of a doctor has a huge effect on the life of the patient and his or her loved one.
In the U.S., medical malpractice is the third leading cause of death, according to the Journal of the American Medical Association. However, the number of injuries and fatalities resulting from dental or medical malpractice is likely much higher, since many instances are never reported.
