Physicians have the ability to make us feel better, stay healthy, and prevent future illnesses. Accordingly, the degree of value and respect we have for physicians often lends credence to the idea that a physician’s actions are foolproof; that they know everything and can fix anything. Consequently, we tend to forget that physician mistakes can and do happen. These mistakes rise to the level of medical malpractice when a physician’s actions deviate from the accepted standards of medical practice and causes injury or death to the patient. The effects of these mistakes can be devastating to patients and their loved ones; particularly those ill-equipped to understand the complex medical and legal issues that typically arise with such claims.
