Medical malpractice, also known as medical negligence, is a mistake committed by a health care provider in which a doctor, nurse, therapist or other health care provider negligently failed to abide by recognized standards of care and caused injury or death to the patient. In Florida the law requires the use of outside medical experts who offer opinions on various aspects of the case.
