Medical malpractice occurs when a person suffers injury due to the negligent act or omission of a health care provider. Common categories of medical malpractice cases include the failure by a health care provider to follow standard procedures, properly diagnose a medical condition (for example, failure to diagnose cancer), and to prevent injury at birth.
