When a doctor or other health professional causes you harm because of something they did, or something they should have done, and this harm would not have otherwise occurred. Examples include failing to diagnose a condition, making a mistake during treatment, giving the wrong drug, not warning you about the risks of treatment, or not getting your agreement to treatment.
