When a medical treatment goes wrong, what can you do? You can approach an attorney to open a case of medical negligence. Medical negligence is any injury, damage, loss or trauma caused by the deliberate or ignorant actions of a medical practitioner. This could happen when a surgeon does not perform an operation correctly, or a doctor prescribes the wrong medication or makes the wrong diagnosis, or the standard of care during your hospital stay is lacking, for example.
