Medical negligence and your rights: Know how to make a claim

Medical malpractice happens when a hospital or provider is negligent or otherwise violates the recognized standard of care. In medicine, it's recognized that there is a certain medical standard that has to be met by educated professionals. It's expected that professionals working under the same conditions with the same training and experience should be able to produce similar results for patients.

As a patient who may have experienced malpractice, it's important that you take the time to learn about your rights and what to expect if you want to make a claim. Initially, you will need to show that there was a violation in the expected level of care. Additionally, you need to show that you suffered an injury because of it.

Finally, you have to show that you have significant damages. If you have only a small amount in damages, the cost of the lawsuit may not be as much as the recovery. That's why you should show that you lost a significant portion of income, suffer from lasting, chronic pain and have hardship and suffering as well as other issues as a result of the malpractice and negligence that took place.

Hospitals need to do their due diligence when hiring employees and deciding on treatments that they'll offer. If mistakes happen, the way they handle them can make a huge difference in a patient's life.

Our website has more on medical malpractice and what you can expect if you've been a victim of a medical error or negligence. This is a difficult position to be in, but there is support available.
