Medical malpractice claims and lawsuits can arise when people are injured by
careless or intentional acts of a doctor, nurse, psychiatrist, dentist,
chiropractor, podiatrist, hospital, or other healthcare provider. When
these actions cause an injury to another person (but the actions do
not rise to the level of a crime), they are said to be a "tort," or
civil wrong, which can provide the basis for a lawsuit. When someone
is determined to be legally responsible for injuring someone else,
they are liable for the injury, and may be made to pay the injured
person compensatory damages. Compensatory damages attempt to put an
injured person back in the position he or she was in before being injured.
In some cases, punitive damages are also awarded in these lawsuits. Punitive
damages are intended to punish wrongdoers and prevent them from harming others.
