The term negligence is frequently understood.  It is used frequently by lawyers.  The term negligence creates confusion among non-lawyers.  So, here is my explaination of the term "negligence" in the context of a medical malpractice claim in Norwich, Connecticut.

First, medical malpractice mean medical negligence.  The terms are synonomous.
