What is medical malpractice?
Medical malpractice is more than a medical error or negligence resulting in patient injury. It must involve a failure to adhere an acceptable standard of healthcare practice. Not just doctors, but also nurses, dentists, surgeons and all types of health care practitioners can be guilty of medical malpractice. A 2006 Harvard School of Public Health report indicated that 61 percent of medical malpractice lawsuits settle outside of court. Of those cases that go to trial, the Bureau of Justice Statistics (BJS) reports that less than 25 percent of plaintiffs win medical malpractice verdicts.
