Medical Malpractice
Medical malpractice claims address situations in which a patient is harmed by a medical professional’s failure to competently perform his or her medical duties. To prove that medical malpractice has occurred, the plaintiff (the person suing) must typically show the following four things: (1) that a relationship existed between the medical professional and the patient, (2) that the medical professional was negligent in his or her medical care, (3) that the medical professional’s negligence caused the patient’s injury, and (4) that the patient’s injury led to specific damages for the patient and/or his or her family.
