In a medical malpractice claim four elements must be proven by the party bringing forth the lawsuit:

  • That a duty of care was owed to the patient
  • That duty of care was violated
  • A serious injury resulted
  • That injury was caused by the lack of care

Often testimony from witnesses and medical experts is necessary to establish your claim. Proving that your serious injury was caused by medical malpractice is often difficult to establish because not all bad medical results are the result of medical negligence.
