How Do I Know if I Have a Medical Malpractice Claim?
Medical malpractice claims are often difficult to prove because many complications can arise during a procedure or treatment that can’t be blamed on the negligence or mistake of a health care provider. However, if a medical professional’s oversight or error caused you harm, the difficulty of making a case should not allow the lapse in care or judgment to go unchecked.
That said, to prove a medical malpractice claim, you must show that the health care provider owed you a duty to provide medical services; that there was a breach of duty because the health care provider did not act according to the standards of the medical profession; that the breach of duty caused your injury; and that you sustained actual damages as a result of the injury.
