Medical malpractice cases can arise from a variety of situations, including misdiagnosis, surgical errors, medication mistakes, birth injuries, anesthesia errors, failure to obtain informed consent, and more. These instances can lead to severe physical and emotional trauma, prolonged recovery periods, permanent disabilities, or even loss of life.
Proving medical malpractice requires demonstrating the following key elements:
Duty of Care: The healthcare provider had a legal obligation to provide a reasonable standard of care.
Breach of Duty: The healthcare provider failed to meet the accepted standard of care, acting negligently or making errors that a reasonably skilled professional would not have made.
Causation: The breach of duty directly caused harm or injury to the patient. It must be shown that the patient’s condition worsened, or additional injuries occurred due to the healthcare provider’s negligence.
