Medical malpractice occurs when any doctor or health care provider fails to follow the generally accepted standard of medical care and the failure results in injury or death. Standards of care are defined as what a reasonably competent physician, surgeon, or health care practitioner is required to do under the circumstances involving the diagnosis or treatment of a patient. Liability in medical malpractice claims is not limited to doctors, but it can also include nurses, dentists, technicians, hospitals, or hospital workers.
