Medical Malpractice

When we visit the doctor’s office or a hospital for treatment of an ailment, we expect for our health care providers to perform their jobs competently and without mistakes. Doctors, caretakers, and other medical employees have a very high duty to uphold when at work. Because they handle such delicate matters – the health and lives of other people – they are expected to make minimal errors.

Like everyone else, however, health care providers are human and do mess up from time to time. When they err on the job because they were behaving negligently, however, it is inexcusable. If you have been injured as the result of one of these medical mistakes, you have the right to fight for damages.

The Elements of a Medical Malpractice Case

For you to make a successful medical malpractice claim against a negligent medical worker, you must prove that the following four elements are present:

  • The physician owed you a duty of care
  • This duty was breached
  • The breach resulted in injury to you
  • This injury incurred damages

Many times, doctors will fight long and hard against malpractice suits. An experienced and well-reputed personal injury attorney can help you claim the compensation you deserve.
