Like many other people, you may think you have a medical malpractice lawsuit if your doctor makes a mistake while treating you. This may or not be true. The truth is, there’s a lot more to a medical malpractice case than a patient getting hurt.
The key factors involve showing or proving:
- A doctor or another medical professional made a mistake, and
- You were harmed by that mistake
Medical malpractice is when a doctor or another medical professional – like a nurse or technician – does something or doesn’t do something that causes an injury or some harm to you, the patient. This act or failure to act is called an “omission” and is medical negligence.
