Medical malpractice is an area that most people don't talk about. It doesn't come up in every day conversation. Medical malpractice occurs when a doctor, hospital, nurse or medical professional does something wrong or fails to administer something that is vital to your health.
A Virginia family has entered into a lawsuit against a Hawaiian military hospital after the child they had delivered there suffered damage during the birthing process and now has cerebral palsy.
