When you are harmed or injured due to a mistake made by a medical professional, it can be confusing. This person was supposed to help you -- not hurt you. It can be difficult to figure out which professional was negligent. There were many people involved. Doctors, nurses, orderlies and nurse assistants all had a hand in your care.
Many people look at medical malpractice and assume that one instance is the same as the next. However, this is not true. There are many types of negligence that fall under the medical malpractice umbrella.
