From the time we were children, we were taught to place trust in our doctors, nurses and other medical care providers. Health care professionals have a high degree of training and years of education; however, no one who practices medicine or works in the medical field is perfect, and mistakes happen..
When mistakes occur in a medical setting, the results are often life-altering or even deadly. To protect the patient, medical malpractice laws are in place to deal with these situations.
