Medical malpractice affects thousands of American lives every year. While medicine is an imprecise science and the outcome of a procedure or treatment can never be guaranteed, there are still rules and protocol a doctor must follow when treating or diagnosing a patient that minimize the chances of injury or wrongful death. When a doctor or physician fails to adhere to the accepted standard of medical care in his or her field of medicine, and consequently injures or kills a patient, it is referred to as medical malpractice.
