Who can file a case?
As far as medical malpractice is concerned, there are some rules that govern who can file claims and who cannot file. Furthermore, each of these cases has their own set of circumstances, meaning the results can vary greatly on a case-by-case basis. The details of your case determine the compensation that you’re awarded. Not everyone that’s seen a doctor can file a lawsuit; here are a few things that must be true in order to file a medical malpractice lawsuit.
A doctor-patient relationship must have been established. You may only file a medical malpractice case against doctors that have agreed to treat you in a professional setting. You can’t claim damages from a doctor that you overheard at an event.
The doctor must have been negligent. Some medical procedures may not work out as planned. To file a claim, you must be able to prove that the doctor was negligent and that those injuries were caused by their negligence.
The improper care led to specific problems. Finally, you must be able to prove that the negligent medical care was the cause of your injuries or illnesses.
