Generally speaking, it must be shown that
1. a significant injury occurred to the patient,
2. the doctor or hospital staff performed in a way that was not up to the standard of care expected from such a medical professional, AND
3. the lack of care or medical mistake directly caused the injury suffered by the patient.
|House never cares about medical malpractice|
“There are instances where a bad outcome with a doctor is not the result of medical malpractice. There are also many instances where a plaintiff does not want to sue the doctor, but is okay with suing the maker of the medical product that failed. This gives the victim another option to recover compensation for their injuries,”
