Who can file a case?
There are some rules about who can file claims and who cannot file claims in medical malpractice lawsuits. Furthermore, we understand that each case is different, which means the successfulness of your claim, and how much compensation you receive, will be dependent on the specific details of your case. Take a look at a few of these basic things that must be true if you plan on filing a medical malpractice lawsuit.
A doctor-patient relationship must have been established. You may only file a case against a doctor that has agreed to treat you in a professional setting. Doctors can’t get in trouble for off-handed comments made away from work.
The doctor must have been negligent. Unfortunately, not all medical procedures will go as planned. To file a claim, you must be able to prove that the doctor was negligent and that their negligence caused your injuries.
The improper care led to specific problems. You must prove that the injuries or illnesses from which you suffer were caused by the improper medical care that you received.
