Patients assume that the doctors, nurses, surgeons, and pharmacists into whose care they have entrusted their health are highly trained, capable, and ethical. While this is most often the case, medical malpractice is alarmingly common, and when medical professionals are remiss or negligent in their duties, patients can suffer severe consequences. If a patient suffers an injury or death that any other reasonable medical professional could have avoided, that patient may have been a victim of medical malpractice.
