How Do I Know if I Have a Medical Malpractice Claim?
A medical malpractice claim is often difficult to prove because of the many complications which can arise during a procedure or treatment that cannot 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
- There was a breach of duty because the health care provider did not act according to the standards of the medical profession
- The breach of duty caused your injury
- You sustained actual damages as a result of the injury
