If you sustained injuries because of the negligence of a healthcare provider, you might have a strong enough case to file an intentional tort. Negligence represents the most common type of tort filed as a civil lawsuit, while unintentional negligence means the healthcare provider that harmed you did not mean to do it. Whenever a party does not provide a reasonable duty of care, the party has committed one or more acts of unintentional negligence.
Unintentional torts are commonly filed against the healthcare industry. An example of an unintentional tort in the medical field is failing to provide the correct diagnosis for a medical condition. Although the healthcare provider did not act with malice or bad intent, the healthcare provider must assume the legal liability for carelessly making the wrong diagnosis.
Just because a healthcare provider did not mean to harm you, the judicial system grants you the right to file a civil lawsuit to address an unintentional tort.
