Some medical malpractice cases are rooted in an incorrect diagnosis, a failure to properly identify a medical problem. Other cases are the result of negligent treatment given by a doctor. Treatment can be considered to take many forms: surgeries, procedures, and pharmaceutical therapies (medications) are common among them. Some treatment errors represent serious negligence.
Doctors are not perfect, but they are expected to uphold certain standards of care in their treatment of diseases and other problems. When they are negligent in their duties, people suffer.
