“Do no harm” is part of the oath doctors take before being allowed to practice medicine. While most doctors do their best to follow this oath, bad things still happen and sometimes innocent people are injured or lose their lives as a result of medical errors. When someone is injured as a result of a medical error, they are entitled to bring a case for medical malpractice against the medical provider. At Howell & Christmas, our experienced medical malpractice lawyers representing Manning can help you identify whether or not medical malpractice has occurred in your case and can help you win your case, if it has.
Can Any Medical Provider Commit Malpractice?
Committing malpractice requires a medical provider to fail on a number of different levels, and while any person providing medical care can commit medical malpractice, proving medical malpractice can be difficult and complicated.
Proving Medical Malpractice
Proving medical malpractice cases can be difficult because there are a number of reasons why a medical procedure might not have gone as planned or why a medical condition wasn’t properly diagnosed. In order to prove a medical malpractice case you have to prove that
- The medical provider owed the patient a duty of care,
- The medical provider failed to provide the standard of care a similar medical provider would have administered in the same situation,
- The medical provider’s error or failure directly caused the patient’s injuries, medical complications or death, and
- The patient can be compensated financially for the medical provider’s error.
