Everyone makes mistakes. But when doctors, nurses, therapists or dentists make them, the effects can last a lifetime or even result in death. According to the Journal of the American Medical Association, more than 225,000 people die each year due to medical errors. Medical malpractice can be defined as the failure of a medical professional, service provider, or physician to meet the customary standard of health care provided by the medical industry.
