One of the factors that sets medical malpractice cases apart from most other personal injury cases is that frequently you will not have any idea as to whether or not you have been the victim of malpractice. What you will know is that you or a family member has received a bad result or outcome as a result of a surgery or other medical treatment or therapy.
