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 its 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.

  1. A doctor-patient relationship must have been established. You cannot file a medical malpractice case against a doctor that never agreed to treat you. The advice you heard from a doctor in an informal setting does not make them liable for your injuries.
  2. The doctor must have been negligent. Not all medical procedures will work out as planned. To file a suit, you need to prove that the doctor was acting negligently and that the negligence caused your injuries.
  3. The improper care led to specific problems. You must be able to prove that the medical care you received was the cause of any injury or serious illness developed thereafter.
