How Do I Know If I Have the Grounds For a Medical Malpractice Claim?
Every surgery is unique and one patient may come out fine while another is left to deal with the consequences of a surgeon’s mistake. Depending on the cause of the error, the damage can last for years, sometimes even permanently.
Surgical errors commonly occur because of:
- Lack of communication
- Inadequate preparation for the surgery
- The use of shortcuts
However, just because your surgeon made a mistake does not necessarily mean you can file a medical malpractice claim. In order to file a claim, you must show that the surgeon fell below the accepted medical standard of care and harmed you in the process. The medical standard of care essentially refers to the type of care you can expect from a competent medical professional. Proof that this standard of care was broken is essential, for your claim might be denied otherwise.
