Medical malpractice is a serious issue that affects countless individuals and families each year. When you seek medical treatment, you place your trust in the hands of healthcare professionals, expecting them to provide a standard of care that meets certain legal and ethical standards. However, there are instances where this trust is betrayed, and patients suffer harm due to negligence or errors on the part of medical providers. In such cases, victims of medical malpractice have the right to seek justice through legal action. Attorney Lanease D. Fuller is dedicated to helping victims of medical malpractice understand their rights and navigate the complex legal process.
Grounds for a Medical Malpractice Lawsuit
Medical malpractice occurs when a healthcare provider, such as a doctor, nurse, or hospital, deviates from the accepted standard of care, resulting in harm to a patient. To pursue a medical malpractice lawsuit successfully, certain key elements must be present:
Doctor-Patient Relationship: There must be a valid doctor-patient relationship, establishing a duty of care between the healthcare provider and the patient.
Breach of Standard of Care: The healthcare provider must have breached the standard of care, which typically means failing to provide treatment that meets the accepted medical standards.
Causation: It must be demonstrated that the breach of the standard of care directly caused the patient’s injuries or harm. Without a clear link between the provider’s actions and the patient’s suffering, it can be challenging to build a case.
Damages: Patients must have suffered significant damages as a result of the malpractice. These damages can include physical pain, emotional distress, medical expenses, lost wages, or even wrongful death in the most severe cases.
Expert Testimony: Medical malpractice cases often require expert testimony to establish the standard of care and demonstrate how it was breached. An attorney experienced in medical malpractice will work with qualified medical experts to build a compelling case.
