Medical malpractice isn’t always a case involving a doctor or surgeon who made a negligent mistake and injured or harmed a patient. It also frequently involves a patient being harmed by a healthcare clinic or hospital’s negligence. And while a specific employee, such as a nurse, physical therapist, or physician assistant may be the person who made the mistake, the organization they work for may be held liable—not the individual healthcare worker.
However, suing organizations for medical malpractice isn’t always easy. Just as doctors and surgeons have malpractice insurance to protect them from lawsuits, so too do healthcare clinics and hospitals. In fact, the amount of coverage they have—and the legal protection they’re afforded—is often much greater than what doctors and surgeons have access to.
