Proving Medical Malpractice
If you think you have a valid medical malpractice case, you need to do more than show you ended up with an undesirable result after receiving medical treatment. Proving medical negligence is a complex task that requires a patient to show that a doctor provided care that fell short of accepted medical standards. The patient also needs to show that some sort of measurable harm resulted from the doctor's negligence. To further complicate matters, in most cases proof must be established by way of expert testimony. In this section, we'll take a close look at the challenges of proving medical malpractice.
