What’s the Difference Between Medical Negligence and Medical Malpractice?

Medical Negligence requires a doctor to fail to act as a reasonably careful doctor would do under the same or similar circumstances.   Medical Malpractice, on the other hand, is generally considered to be when a doctor acts with gross negligence.  Most cases are medical negligence cases.
