Medical malpractice is a very serious issue that can have long-lasting effects on the person who isn't properly cared for. When you are injured by a medical professional, you might decide that you want to take action to hold that person accountable. This can serve two purposes -- the person is held liable for the issue and you can get compensation for the damages.

Think about the effects of a doctor failing to diagnose a heart attack. That could be fatal. Failing to diagnose the flu wouldn't be as bad but it could turn into a big issue if pneumonia sets in.
Another issue that can occur is a surgical error. That can involve surgery on the wrong body part. It can also mean items left behind in the patient. In each of these cases, the damages can end up being considerable.
