What Are the Requirements for a Medical Malpractice Lawsuit?

Medical malpractice claim requirements can be extremely difficult for a layperson to comprehend. That is why it will be so important to speak with an experienced attorney if you have suffered harm due to the failure of a medical professional responsible for your care to properly perform his or her duties.

The Basics

One of the most basic requirements for a medical malpractice lawsuit is to prove that the malpractice occurred in the first place. You must first prove that you and your doctor had a patient-doctor relationship — you hired the doctor, and the doctor agreed to treat you. This might seem straightforward, but there can be instances where someone might want to sue a consulting physician who did not provide direct treatment.

You will also need to prove the negligence of the medical professional. This is another one of the most basic malpractice claim requirements, but it can be difficult to prove. You cannot merely claim that you were not happy with the results of the treatment you received or that you were not satisfied with the way that treatment was provided. You have to prove the doctor caused you harm in a way a competent medical professional would not have harmed you.
