Doctors make mistakes.
Medical malpractice (negligence) occurs when a health care professional fails to diagnose a condition or to properly treat a patient and such failure in turn causes injury to the patient. Although a doctor is not responsible for a bad outcome standing alone, the doctor may be liable if he or she did not exercise reasonable care in treating a patient.
This failure to exercise reasonable care can occur in many instances: failing to diagnose a condition, improperly performing a procedure, neglecting a patient, failing to order tests, failing to refer the patient to a specialist, prescribing an improper medication, etc.
