Previously, this blog discussed what must be shown in order to impose liability on a negligent medical professional. Although the law has only a few requirements that must be shown before someone can succeed on their medical malpractice claim, the truth of the matter is that each of these elements can have many contested factual components. The biggest, of course, is that there was a breach in the standard of care owed to a patient. Although legally this only presents one issue, there can be a number of acts and omissions that can leave the matter open for argument.
This is why is why it is often best to have a legal advocate on one’s side when pursuing a medical malpractice claim. A skilled attorney will not only know what acts could constitute negligence and therefore a breach of the duty of care, such as surgical errors and failures to diagnose, but also how to anticipate any defenses that may be raised. This can leave a plaintiff well-positioned to succeed on his or her claim.
