Medical Malpractice Claim
- The plaintiff (the injured party suing) must prove that a doctor-patient relationship existed with the defendant (the doctor being sued).
- The doctor was negligent in his or her care. To prove this, you’ll have to show that the doctor was grossly negligent (grievous errors in care that even non-medical individuals could have recognized as errors, such as reading an x-ray backward and amputating the wrong limb), or another reasonably skilled doctor in the same situation would have done things differently.
- The doctor’s negligence caused an injury. In most malpractice cases, the plaintiff was already injured or ill at the time the doctor’s negligence took place. The plaintiff must be able to prove that the injury in question was “more likely than not” caused by the doctor’s negligence.
- The plaintiff’s injuries resulted in damages. You can only sue for compensation if you sustained harm.
