The Key Factors in a Medical Malpractice Case

Patient Consent

If a doctor performs treatment on you without your consent, you may have grounds for a medical malpractice claim. In order for you to give consent properly, you must know all the risks, benefits and possible other options of the proposed treatment (the doctor must list them to you). You must be able to mentally comprehend this information and you must give your permission on a waiver consenting to the proposed treatment. If these actions aren’t taken before the doctor performs his or her treatment on you, you could have a viable case.

Healthcare Worker Negligence

Too often injuries are caused by healthcare worker negligence. To prove healthcare worker negligence you must explain how a professional doctor would have treated you then point out how the doctor in question failed to do so correctly. This all comes down to the “standard of care.” The standard of care is the level of healthcare you should get from a competent and skilled healthcare professional.

The Consequences

The consequences of medical malpractice can come in many forms, but they must be present to have a viable case. For example, the damages may include suffering, pain, the loss of income due to the injury or a disability.
