Medical Malpractice FAQs

Most medical malpractice cases center around negligent care that causes preventable suffering. A doctor’s negligence is typically defined by their failure to follow the medical standard of care. This refers to the behavior expected from any medical professional. It includes factors like the time, attention, and treatment they provide in a given case. If your doctor fails to perform the way another provider with similar training would, and you get hurt, they could be liable for malpractice. Common examples of malpractice include failure to diagnose or to communicate treatment risks.

To give your case merit, you must provide evidence that indicates your doctor’s negligence. You will need specific information about your treatment and time spent with the doctor to determine your case’s validity. First, you must show that a doctor-patient relationship existed, meaning that you hired your doctor, and they agreed to treat you. Next, you must demonstrate that the doctor was negligent and this negligence led to an illness, injury, or another form of suffering. Often, an examination from another medical professional is necessary to determine this information. Lastly, you must prove that your doctor’s negligent actions harmed you in some way. This could be physical pain, mental anguish, additional medical bills, or lost income or earning capacity.

Winning a medical malpractice case can help you recover from the physical and financial burden of your doctor’s negligence. But filing a claim and building a case is a long and complex process with numerous essential steps. Just one mistake along the way could destroy even a valid medical malpractice lawsuit. An experienced malpractice attorney knows all the steps you must take and can handle your case appropriately. They can also identify and preserve strong evidence to support your claim and prove that malpractice occurred. You do not have to face this difficult and high-stakes process alone.
