Medical malpractice is an area of personal injury law that covers the liability upon medical professionals for patient injuries. Often referred to as medical negligence, medical malpractice suits usually come down to whether the injured patient can show that the medical professional failed to use proper care in treating the patient. Just as with most other personal injury cases, the medical malpractice injury victim has the burden of proving the essential elements of the negligence cause-of-action. Some common areas of litigation within medical malpractice law include wrongful death, misdiagnosis of condition, negligent treatment, and delay in providing care.
