What is medical malpractice in D.C. or Maryland? You might have heard the term, but do you really know what it includes?

There are many forms of medical malpractice. The legal definition of medical malpractice is a breach of the standard of care, which means that the hospital, HMO, or doctor didn’t do what a reasonable or prudent health care provider would have done in the same situation. However, to have a case, you also need to show that medical malpractice caused injury or death.

When a doctor or hospital makes a conscious decision to not be safe and you are injured as a result, you might have a medical malpractice claim.
