Rob Rosenthal:

What's the difference between medical malpractice and a bad outcome of a surgery? Let's ask Alaska lawyer Mark Choate for an Ask the Lawyers Quick Question.

Mark Choate: 

Medical malpractice occurs when a doctor, nurse, health care provider has failed to meet the what would be considered the standard of care for a healthcare provider in that situation. Sometimes infrequently, there are bad outcomes just because they're bad outcomes, but you often don't know. And sadly, you can't rely or trust the doctor or healthcare professionals to tell you whether the outcome was because they made a mistake and he didn't meet the standard care, or it was just bad luck. So it's important if you think you have a medical malpractice case to have someone look at it who knows what they're doing.
