When can the careless provision of misinformation give rise to liability? Surprisingly, the issue has not been addressed very often outside of commercial contexts.
Underinsurance is an optional insurance policy, which you can purchase when you get liability insurance for your car.

Medical malpractice is defined in the law as a departure from accepted medical practice. That is, a doctor did (or did not do) that which a reasonable doctor would have done under similar circumstances. A mere error in judgment is not medical malpractice.
