Medical malpractice is the negligent failure of licensed physicians to meet the standards of practice of medicine. It occurs when patients are seriously damaged because healthcare providers and healthcare facilities fail to meet the standard of good practice in the areas in which they specialize. A healthcare provider may be a doctor, nurse, allied health professional (e.g., respiratory technician, physical therapist), or other individual assisting with treatment of patients under the direction of a licensed professional.

Examples of potential medical malpractice claims include, without limitation, failure to diagnose a condition or disease, mistakes in diagnostic procedures, medication errors, surgical mistakes, or failing to provide an adequate level of qualified staff to ensure patient safety.
