Medical negligence occurs when medical professionals make mistakes or fail in their responsibility of care, leading to injury or worsening an existing condition. There are many ways in which this can happen, such as misdiagnosis, incorrect treatment, or surgical mistakes.

A misdiagnosis, delayed diagnosis, medication errors and surgical negligence are just examples of how a medical visit can cause an injury or worsen your condition. If your healthcare provider fails to provide a reasonable standard of care, you might be entitled to make a medical negligence claim.
