What Is Medical Malpractice?
Medical malpractice occurs when a doctor, nurse, or other healthcare provider fails to provide a reasonable standard of care, resulting in harm to a patient. A medical malpractice claim may be brought against the actual provider that caused your injury or the hospital where it occurred. In some cases, you may have a valid claim against both parties.
How Do I Prove Medical Malpractice?
Proving medical malpractice can be challenging without the help of a qualified lawyer. You must show that the doctor or nurse deviated from a reasonable standard of care, causing you injury. Many medical procedures come with a certain degree of risk. Normal complications from a medical procedure are not usually grounds for medical malpractice. Therefore it is critical to consult with an attorney to determine if you have a valid claim.
If you believe that your healthcare provider failed to provide you with a reasonable standard of care, resulting in harm, you will want to keep all of your medical records. The more evidence you can provide, the stronger your case will be.
