Medical negligence can be hard to explain. Basically, if most of the healthcare providers in the same field as your provider agree that the care met acceptable medical standards, then no medical negligence existed regardless of the outcome. If, on the other hand, most of the healthcare providers agree that the care you received was substandard or below acceptable standards, medical negligence is said to exist.
