Do I have a medical malpractice claim?

Medical malpractice occurs when a doctor harms a patient by failing to perform their medical duties properly. Medical malpractice claims must be proven and have basic requirements. There must have been a doctor-patient relationship, meaning the doctor was hired and agreed to be hired. The doctor had to be negligent in the diagnosis or treatment of the patient. The doctor's negligence has to be the cause of injury. The patient has to show where the injuries, more likely than not, were directly caused by the negligence of a doctor or medical professional.

Medical experts review claims and testify if a doctor has been negligent. The injuries sustained must lead to specific damages like physical pain, mental anguish, additional medical bills, lost work, and lost earning capacity. There are different types of medical malpractice claims. The most common types of claims include: failure to diagnose, improper treatment, and failure to warn patient of known risks.
