Medical Malpractice is a fancy word for Medical Negligence. Medical Negligence occurs when a health care provider does something that a reasonably careful person would not have done or fails to do something that a reasonably careful health care provider would have done.
Doing what is reasonably careful under the circumstances is referred to as complying with the standard of care. The difficulty in medical negligence cases is that there are no hard and fast rules as to the standard of care. The standard of care is defined by professionals within the field so in a medical negligence lawsuit there is great expense in finding and obtaining testimony from an expert who is willing to be critical of a fellow professional.
