Elements Of A Medical Negligence Lawsuit
To successfully prove a case of medical malpractice and recover financial compensation for injuries, we must demonstrate several elements:
- The defendant – the doctor, nurse, hospital or any health care provider – owed a duty of care to the injured patient. Doctors have a duty to provide their patients with a certain level of care in order to avoid causing harm.
- The defendant breached this duty of care.
- The patient suffered an injury as a direct result of the breach.
- The patient suffered damages – such as medical bills, lost wages as well as pain and suffering – due to their injury.
Calculating Damages And Compensation
An injured patient may seek compensation for damages, including past medical and rehabilitation bills, lost earnings, and out-of-pocket expenses such as home health care and mobility equipment. In addition, survivors may be entitled to compensation for future medical bills related to the injury. To determine future expenses, our legal team will work together with medical and financial experts to show the type of care that will be necessary for living with the injury, as well as the costs of ongoing medical treatment. These costs cover a lifetime of medical care and are adjusted in the event of inflation. Furthermore, noneconomic damages may also be awarded to a medical malpractice victim. We can work to establish the monetary value of less tangible damages, including physical pain and suffering, as well as the loss of enjoyment in life.
