Doctors and other providers can be negligent just like anyone else; but they don’t like to admit it.
Health care professionals have special protection in the law, unlike anyone else who faces a lawsuit, giving them a different set of rules than the rest of us. Medical malpractice cases are the most expensive cases for us to try, and it's very difficult to sue a doctor, nurse, or hospital. Nevertheless, I refuse to turn my back on patients who have legitimate claims.
I have successfully prosecuted many of these cases and obtained favorable settlements and verdicts for my clients. I make a point to understand the medical nuances in these cases to prevent providers from taking an unfair advantage.
