Medical malpractice is defined by Merriam-Webster as careless, wrong, or illegal actions by a doctor who is performing a professional duty. Most medical-legal cases are settled for a variety of reasons, however, those cases that make it to a court of law rely on experts to teach, train, and educate the jury.
I was recently involved in a medical malpractice case that went against the physician. Remember, most malpractice cases are brought against a physician is in reality bad outcomes, as no one in the medical profession attempts to do the wrong thing to anyone. In this particular case, however, lack of communication and common sense led to a favorable plaintiff's verdict.
