Medical malpractice is a theory of liability that, if successfully established, legally proves a medical professional or healthcare provider negligently caused a persons bodily injury. It is a type of tort. The big distinction of medical malpractice cases is the standard of care that the Plaintiff must prove was breached by the doctor or health care facility. It's a much higher standard of care than an ordinary negligence case.
Please see the following guide for California Landlords and Tenants. This guide outlines the rights and responsibilities for both the landlord and the tenant.
