Medical malpractice is a form of negligence where an injury results from the failure of a medical professional or medical facility (doctor, nurse, medical technician, psychiatrist, psychologist, hospital, healthcare facility, etc.) to exercise the appropriate care, skill or diligence necessary to properly care for the medical condition. A doctor or other medical provider has a duty to use the appropriate care and diligence to diagnose your illness and provide the proper treatment for such illness. The determination of whether a duty of care is met depends upon the standard of care for that professional or facility in their community. Simply put, the applicable duty arises from the accepted practices of other professionals or facilities in the same field and geographical area. In the case of a doctor who is medical specialist, the standard of care is determined by the standard of good medical practice in that specialty within the community.
