When a medical professional does something improperly, or fails to do something necessary that results in a patient’s injury or death, medical malpractice has occurred. Unfortunately, this scenario happens all too often. In fact, according to the Journal of the American Medical Association, medical negligence is the third-most cause of death in the U.S. — behind heart disease and cancer.
