While medical knowledge and technology has improved at a staggering rate in the past 100 years, medical malpractice has also become an unfortunate rising factor, and it is more common than many people think. Medical malpractice can take form in several ways like:

Testimony from a medical expert must demonstrate that the breaching of this duty brought you harm, as well as external damages such as lost wages.
