Does a Bad Outcome From a Doctor Mean that Medical Malpractice has Occurred?

No, not at all. No, medicine is an art and a science. There are different schools of thought in how certain conditions need to be treated. Although a physician may do what a reasonable physician has done under the circumstances, and that’s what the standard of care is for medical malpractice, patients still can come out with bad results. You may have a health problem that no care is going to rectify. You may have a problem that a different course of action would have rectified it. However, a reasonable physician would be entitled to recommend the course of treatment that you followed.
