Medical negligence is the failure to provide adequate or appropriate care that results in injury and damages including pain and suffering and economic damages. Medical negligence can include negligent care from a nurse, physician, surgeon, pharmacist, dentist, or other health care employees. Medical negligence is the basis for a medical malpractice lawsuit where the victim is able to claim injury from medical treatment.
