Negligence in Austin Healthcare

From a legal perspective, medical malpractice arises from negligence, which is an unintentional action or inaction that leads to harm. If this occurred on the part of the medical treatment provider, it could be grounds for a case. This action or inaction may be an isolated incident or may evidence a particular medical professional's digression from the standard of care.
