Medical malpractice occurs when medical care leads to injury for a patient because of negligence. Once a doctor, nurse, or other medical professional has acted below safety standards and compromised the wellbeing of the patient, that is medical malpractice.
A patient can sue medical health care providers for negligence. There should be evidence that the patient suffered pain or loss due to improper treatment. In a successful claim, the hospital will need to compensate the patient once there is enough valid evidence against the healthcare provider.

When to File for Medical Malpractice?
Misdiagnosis can cause harm to the body of the patient. It means the wrong medication is given which may result in adverse health problems. It also means that the first illness was not treated.
Also, the doctor may delay giving a diagnosis, causing the condition to worsen. If the health care received contributes to the deteriorating health of the patient, then that is medical malpractice.
