Signs You Have Been the Victim

Errors during surgery are among the most common forms of medical malpractice. These errors can range from the use of unsterilized tools during the procedure to performing the wrong surgery altogether.

Oftentimes, victims of malpractice won’t realize it until much later. These mistakes can lead to infections that can cause loss of extremities or even wrongful death.

If you or a loved one are the victim of medical malpractice, give our law firm of medical malpractice attorneys a call right away to schedule a free consultation to review your case.

There are three specific qualifications that need to be met in order to be considered medical malpractice:

  • A violation in the standard of care. The medical standards of care exist to ensure that all medical professionals act reasonably and similarly. If this level of care is not met, it’s a positive sign that medical malpractice is occurring.
  • An injury or death occurred as a result of doctor negligence. Patients will need to prove that the injury or death was the direct result of medical malpractice. Injury without specific negligence will not be a valid case.
  • The injury caused significant damages. In order for a case to be valid, the patient needs to have suffered a significant amount of damages due to the negligence of the doctor. We can help prove that you suffered from unusual pain, disability, financial and physical hardships, and more.

Proving Medical Malpractice

The process to prove malpractice can be tedious but it is one of the most important parts of the process. You must prove all of the following:

  • There was a doctor-patient relationship. You will have to provide proof that you visited the doctor for treatment.
  • The doctor was negligent. It is important to understand that simply because you are unhappy with the outcome of your treatment, that does not mean medical malpractice was at play. You must show that the doctor caused you harm and treated you in a way that another doctor would not.
  • The doctor’s negligence caused injury. Patients must prove that their injury was “more likely than not” the direct cause of their doctor’s treatment.

This part of the case is difficult, which is why we recommend that you hire a lawyer for legal services. The lawyers at Shea Law Group have the necessary experience to help you find the proof you need to earn the maximum compensation possible.
