Medical malpractice occurs when a medical practitioner acts in a negligent manner when treating a medical condition. Examples of medical malpractice include failure to diagnose, or misdiagnosis of a disease or medical condition, failure to provide appropriate treatment for a medical condition, unreasonable delay in treating a diagnosed medical condition. Malpractice cases are very expensive to litigate, and statute may limit your recovery of damages.
