How Do You Prove Negligence in a Medical Malpractice Case?

To prove negligence in a medical malpractice claim, there are four elements you must demonstrate as accurate within the legal system. The items you must prove are the following:

  • Someone owed you a duty of care
  • This duty of care was breached
  • This breach resulted in injuries or other negative consequences to your health
  • You have faced economic damages due to these negative consequences

Some of these elements require collecting evidence and additional legal information about the other parties involved in your case. We encourage you to work with a qualified medical malpractice lawyer for assistance in your claim. 

When you retain support from our Davis & Davis medical malpractice lawyers, we can help you collect evidence, communicate on your behalf, and support you in obtaining fair compensation for your losses.

What Are the Steps to Take After a Medical Malpractice Occurrence?

You may feel overwhelmed by the circumstances if you have been subjected to medical malpractice. You may also worry about what steps you should take next, especially if you are concerned about covering any expenses due to the occurrence. We recommend you take the following steps and strategies:

  • Seek medical attention from another provider you trust
  • Follow your provider’s recommendations for treatment and care at home
  • Go to all follow-up appointments and treatments
  • Avoid discussing your claim with others, including friends and family
  • Speak with an attorney before accepting any settlement from insurance or other parties
  • Share as little information as possible while talking with any insurance companies
  • Retain legal support from a medical malpractice lawyer as soon as possible

An attorney from Davis & Davis will be well-equipped to work with you and confidently handle your claim.
