Do You Have a Valid Medical Malpractice Case?
Medical malpractice cases are a bit different from typical personal injury claims. Rather than having to establish a duty of care — a necessity in personal injury cases — medical malpractice claims must first establish that a doctor-patient relationship exists. This relationship in itself establishes a duty of care on the part of the medical practitioner. It’s also necessary to show that a healthcare provider failed to uphold an appropriate standard of care toward the patient. This means that they engaged in actions that are not considered standard in the broader medical community.
What many people fail to realize is that not all negative outcomes constitute negligence. There are times when bad things can happen, even when a healthcare professional does everything by the book. This element can make medical malpractice cases very complicated, and it is a major reason that victims should have an experienced medical malpractice attorney rather than a more general practitioner. ‘
For instance, what if someone dies after surgery? Was it because their disease was too far along already, or did serious surgical mistakes – such as wrong side surgery – occur during the procedure? While never events like this should not happen at all, they sometimes do, leaving everyone involved trying to figure out what happened. This complexity is why Virginia requires a third-party expert certification for medical and dental malpractice claims.
