Medical Malpractice Overview
Medical malpractice is legally defined as improper treatment by medical professionals. Every day, patients place a great deal of trust into the “capable” hands of their physicians, surgeons, therapists, and hospitals. Patients expect to receive appropriate medical care from certified medical professionals; they do not expect to incur more physical harm during their treatment.
Medical Malpractice and Liability
If a patient sustains an injury do to the substandard care of a medical professional, he/she may be allowed to file medical malpractice lawsuit. Before a patient can file a medical malpractice lawsuit, he/she must be able to establish three things. First, the patient must prove that a doctor-patient relationship existed. Second, the patient must prove that he/she sustained an injury. And last, the patient must be able to prove the injury resulted from the medical professional’s substandard medical care. These three issues may also be referred to as legally as liability, damages, and direct causal link.
