Elements of a medical malpractice case
There are several things that you must prove in order to prevail on a medical malpractice claim.
- You and the person you are suing had a patient/health care provider relationship. Casually discussing your case at the park with a neighborhood health care practitioner does not create such a relationship.
- The health care practitioner was negligent and provided care that did not meet the standard of care for the community.
- The provider’s negligence is the cause of your harm. This is not difficult when the wrong limb is amputated. It may be more difficult to prove in other cases that are not so clear.
- The provider’s negligence caused you to suffer damage.
The standard of care in the community is determined by the care other medical practitioners in the same type of practice and who work in your community deem appropriate. This requires the evaluation of a medical expert who will testify that the provider you are suing did not meet the standard of care when treating you and that failing to meet that standard is the cause of your damages.
