When people think of car accidents, they usually think of accidents that are caused by drivers who don't drive properly. That, however, isn't always the case. There are some instances in which the car accident can be caused by a defect in one of the automobiles. In that case, the personal injury claim might turn into a product liability claim because of the defect with the car.
Patients who seek medical care for any condition expect that the doctor they see will make a proper diagnosis. They also expect that they will receive at least standard medical care for their condition. Patients certainly don't expect for doctors to make an incorrect diagnosis or to provide them with sub-standard care. Some patients find themselves in harm's way because of medical malpractice.
