What is medical malpractice?
Medical malpractice refers to the medical care provided by a health care professional which falls below the acknowledged standard practice of medicine, and results in injury or death of the patient. Most often, medical malpractice is the product of professional negligence, medical error, or unskilled care to a patient.
Why should I contact an attorney if I suspect a medical malpractice case?
Although many patients suffer from harm to their health, it is not always the case that medical malpractice was the primary cause for the damage. Healthcare providers are only liable for the failure to provide the quality of service that other reasonably competent healthcare professional would have exercised under similar situations. There are many factors to take into consideration when determining liability regarding the health harm a patient has suffered. Personal injury attorneys are trained to determine whether legal action is warranted or not. If so, personal injury attorneys are required to prove that the harm suffered by the patient has resulted directly from a negligent, erred, or unskilled treatment.
Proving Medical Malpractice
Any individual who alleges to be a victim of medical malpractice, as well as the corresponding legal representative of such individual must present proof of four elements:
1. Duty of care was owed by the physician: Once a healthcare provider agrees to treat a patient, he or she has a medical duty to provide capable care.
2. The provider failed to conform to accepted medical treatment: Proof must present how the treatment differs from that offered by other healthcare professionals.
3. The patient has suffered an injury or health damage: Proof of injury can include but is not limited to both physical and emotional effects of the treatment prescribed.
4. The health damage was caused by the substandard treatment provided by a healthcare professional.
Presenting valid and truthful evidence to prove a medical malpractice case requires the experience and knowledge of a personal injury attorney capable of defending your case.
