Medical malpractice suits usually arise due to the professional negligence of a medical practitioner (by act or omission). The medical practitioner (specialists, doctors, nurses, pharmacists, dentists, medical technicians and alternative health practitioners, including chiropractors) has made an error while treating the plaintiff, which consequently resulted in injury or death. In these types of cases you must show gross negligence on the part of the medical practitioner and that their care has fallen below the minimum standard which the medical profession regards as acceptable. You have two years from when you knew or should have known about the negligence to file a lawsuit against the accused.
