What is Medical Negligence?

Medical negligence is best described as any failure of a professional in the field of medicine to provide care that is up to current accepted standards. Medical negligence refers to an omission or some form of neglect, as opposed to intentional misconduct. In this way, negligence is different than a purposeful act, and although a doctor may have had no intention of harming a patient, he or she may still be held accountable in accordance with California medical malpractice law.
