In a successful medical malpractice claim, the following four items must be proven:
-The medical professional was entrusted to provide a certain level of care to the patient.
-The said medical professional failed to provide the expected level of care.
-The plaintiff or person harmed suffered a legitimate injury.
-The injury is the result of the neglectful act by the medical professional.
These items are not always obvious in a given situation. Winning a malpractice case requires a great deal of effort and a great deal of evidence — there must be substantial proof that you or your loved one has suffered a painful, irreversible, significant or fatal injury as a result of physician error. A good medical malpractice attorney will be able to gather the evidence in a malpractice suit to prove that the physical and emotional suffering incurred was the result of medical malpractice.
