Every mistake in their business could cost someone a life. And that is the reason why they should pay penalties. It is the same in every business and it should be here the same, especially because the consequences are harder.

The question is: “How to prove medical malpractice?”

The second step is to prove that the doctor was negligent, that is that they failed to provide you a safe treatment. Your doctor should follow some standard procedure in you treatment. This is the hardest part.
