It can also give you an edge during insurance settlement negotiations.
Examples of Medical Malpractice

If an employee of the hospital, such as a nurse or assistant, caused your injuries, you may be able to hold the establishment responsible. Other potential liable parties could include medical equipment/device manufacturers, property owners, or third parties.
