What is medical malpractice or medical negligence and what kinds of relief may I expect from the medical provider?

Medical negligence or malpractice occurs when a medical provider or healthcare provider fails to exercise the degree of care expected of the person of ordinary prudence in protecting a patient from risk or harm. A patient or plaintiff must establish by preponderance of the evidence that the defendant had a duty to the patient that such duty was breached by failing to conform to the required standards of conduct and that negligent conduct caused harm to the patient. These cases frequently involve doctors, hospitals, nurses, dentists or those medical providers that have some degree of expertise in providing care and treatment to patients.
