How Do You Know If You Have a Case for Medical Malpractice?

In order to prove that you have a medical malpractice claim, there are four essential elements that you must be able to prove:

  • A doctor-patient relationship was established
  • The doctor, or other medical professional, was negligent
  • That negligence caused your injury
  • Your injury caused damages

But what does this all mean? Here is a simple example: a patient establishes care with a surgeon to have a medically necessary surgery. The procedure is completed, but the patient continues to have pain and it gets worse every day. The patient brings up the concern with the doctor during the post-op appointment, but the doctor brushes it off as normal post-operative pain that will go away as the patient heals. But the patient continues to have to debilitating pain and finally gets an x-ray that shows a surgical instrument was left inside from the procedure. A second, emergency surgery is immediately ordered. There are two elements of neglect here: the first being that an instrument was left in the patient in the first place and the second being the doctor brushing off the patient's initial concern.

This is an obvious example of medical malpractice, but medical neglect can be in many forms. That's why it is vital to keep records and hire a Canton medical malpractice attorney as quickly as possible. Our legal team wants to help you fight for the compensation you deserve after going through unnecessary and preventable pain and suffering.

When Medical Providers Fail to Provide Appropriate Care

Standard of care describes the level and type of care a trained healthcare professional should provide. The acceptable standard of care varies depending on the specific medical condition, general health of the patient, the patient’s age, and other factors. Because each case is unique, it is important to speak with a Canton medical injury attorney about your specific situation.

Medical malpractice lawsuits may be filed against:

  • Doctors
  • Nurses
  • Dentists
  • Hospitals
  • Medical centers
  • Other healthcare professionals and facilities

    If medical malpractice is proven in court, you may be awarded damages for your injury. This may include compensation for the cost of medical care needed to treat the injury and lost wages for the time you are unable to work due to the injury. Additionally, you may be awarded compensation for pain and suffering.
