Medical malpractice claims arise when medical professionals cause injury to patients due to negligence. Doctors, nurses, caregivers, hospitals, and other healthcare professionals and institutions owe their patients a duty of care. When this duty of care is breached, then they can be held liable for a patient's injury.

What About Cases with Multiple Liability?
In some cases, even if a patient was partially responsible for the medical injuries, he or she can still recover some damages under statutes. The damages available would be reduced by the percentage you are considered at fault. If more than one healthcare provider is at fault for your injuries, then you may be able to hold both providers jointly responsible.
