Understanding medical negligence

Medical negligence occurs when healthcare providers do not provide sufficient care, leading to additional injuries, illnesses, and emotional distress for the patient. Whether it arises from a misdiagnosis, improper treatment, or surgical mistake, such lapses can worsen preexisting conditions and causing unwarranted suffering.
