- 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.
- 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.
