Medical malpractice is a particular field of personal injury law that deals with injuries caused by a medical professional's failure to provide standard patient care. Virtually any professional in the field of medicine may commit malpractice, whether a doctor, surgeon, pediatrician, obstetrician, cosmetic surgeon, anesthesiologist, nurse, dentist or psychiatrist. Medical facilities may be held accountable for medical malpractice as well.

The key part of a medical malpractice case will be proving that the patient receive care that was not in accordance with currently accepted standards in medicine. This may occur at any level of care: diagnosis, treatment, preoperative care, surgery, postoperative care, follow-up care, or in the prescribing or administering of medicine. In any of these situations, a patient who does not receive proper care or attention from a doctor or other medical professional may be at risk of serious injury or even death. It is for this reason injured patients have the right to file medical malpractice claims against those responsible for what they have experienced.
