Lawsuits involving medical malpractice are often complex, and there are four elements that need to be covered in order to prove that their medical negligence did in fact occur.
- Duty of Care: Health care providers, including doctors, nurses, midwives and all medical staff owe a duty of care to their patients. This means that they need to act according to their level of expertise and meet the accepted standards of care that the law and their professional agreements require for them.
- Breach of Duty: Breach of duty occurs when a health care professional fails to meet the accepted standards of care and causes a harm, illness or injury to their patient.
- Causation: We must demonstrate that the breach of duty was a direct cause of harm to the patient. For example, if a doctor failed to properly diagnose a patient, and 6 months later they are diagnosed with advanced cancer, then it may be possible to show that if they had been diagnosed earlier then proper treatment could have delayed the advancement of the cancer in question.
- Damages: It must be demonstrated that the medical negligence that occured resulted in damages to the patient, such as medical bills, financial expenses, lost time from work, physical pain and suffering, etc.
In order to successfully prove all four elements, you need an attorney that has experience handling medical malpractice lawsuits. Handling these types of cases requires a special skill set in order to demonstrate how these four elements happened and the effects on the victim.
