Patients are forced to blindly trust their doctors and the hospital staff who care for them. The state of health care today often dictates that patients have little if any choice in which doctors they see. Patients are at a distinct disadvantage because they do not have the knowledge that their medical professionals maintain. So, when a medical mistake occurs, the patients and their families are entitled to an explanation. When a hospital or doctor did something they should not have done or failed to do something they should have done and injury results, it constitutes medical malpractice. Physicians and hospitals are held accountable for their mistakes and/or misconduct. Medical negligence cases provide patients and their families with answers and accountability when the medical professionals fail to do so and serve compensate the victims for the consequences of the medical professionals mistakes.
