Who can file a case?
While you may have been injured while you were in the hospital, it may not be grounds for a case. There are certain rules that apply, when it comes to medical malpractice lawsuits, about who can and cannot file suit. Additionally, all cases are different, and the specific details of your case will end up deciding how much compensation you receive. In order to file a claim, the following things must be true.
A doctor-patient relationship must have been established. Medical malpractice claims can only be filed against doctors that have agreed to treat that patient. You may not file a claim against medical advice you overheard from a doctor.
The doctor must have been negligent. Many times, medical procedures don’t work as you planned. Unfortunately, this isn’t always grounds for a case. You must prove that the doctor was acting negligently.
The improper care led to specific problems. Finally, you must be able to prove that your specific injuries or illness were the result of specific instances of improper care.
