Medical Negligence and Tort Law

Medical malpractice occurs when a doctor or other medical professional does not meet standards of care as set forth by the medical community. Their careless or negligent acts then result in injuries to patients. These injuries can take a variety of forms, including a damaged spine, damaged ligaments or tendons, or a damaged nervous system. If a patient decides to pursue a medical malpractice claim, he or she must prove that the four tort elements are present in the case.
