The truth is that everyone makes mistakes. As parents, we even teach our children that it’s only human to make mistakes because that’s how we learn. But that isn’t the case with medical professionals like doctors, nurses, psychiatrists, surgeons or even a medical facility with whom you are entrusting your care. When you or your loved one are in a doctor’s care, it is expected that they will provide the best standard of care possible for you. When that doesn’t happen and something goes wrong, we know that these errors were not intentional, but medical mistakes can be costly and life-threatening. At Brotman, Nusbaum, & Ibrahim, we understand how challenging cases of medical negligence/medical malpractice can be. We are here to fight for your rights.
How Can a Medical Negligence/Malpractice Attorney Prove My Case?
One of the reasons to hire a malpractice attorney is because cases of this type are so difficult to prove. When first considering a medical negligence claim, you’ll want to find an attorney with many years of experience. Malpractice suits can be complicated, and proving medical negligence isn’t that easy. At Brotman, Nusbaum, & Ibrahim, we have worked tirelessly for our clients in Boca Raton and throughout Florida on a wide range of medical negligence issues. Malpractice attorneys will generally follow these general rules to prove your case:
- They must prove that the medical professional had a “duty of care” to the patient. Most often this entails establishing that you were a patient under the medical professional’s care.
- The medical malpractice attorney must prove that there was a “breach of duty” to the patient when they made a serious error in your care.
- The attorney will then need to prove that there is a causal connection to be made from the breach of duty to your injury (i.e. a medical scan that should have been ordered was not and your injury went undetected and worsened).
- Finally, the attorney must prove that you suffered serious injuries due to the medical professional’s error in your care. They may find witnesses to corroborate your claim.
