What constitutes medical malpractice?

In order to receive compensation for medical malpractice, you will need evidence of the following:

  • The original duty owed to the patient. When a hospital, clinic, or practitioner agrees to perform any medical procedure, they have a duty to perform that duty well and safely.
  • A breach of that duty. If your healthcare provider failed to meet professional standards, he or she breached the duty that is legally owed to you, the patient.
  • Cause of injury. You need some evidence that your doctor’s negligence directly caused the injuries you have suffered.
  • The damages you incurred. To receive compensation, you need evidence of the medical, financial, and emotional losses you suffered due to your injuries.
