Proving Negligence in a Plano Med Mal Claim

The biggest job that your med mal attorney will have in your claim will be to prove that the medical professional was negligent, which solidifies that they were liable for your damages. Their negligence could have manifested in a birth injury, surgical mistake, an infection, or any other medical mistake that left you more injured than when you entered their care. You shouldn’t have to suffer any more from their error.

Your lawyer will collect evidence of your damages so that they can prove the four elements of negligence. Here are the elements that they will need to prove in order to build you the strongest medical malpractice claim possible:

  • A doctor-patient relationship existed between you and the healthcare worker, and they owed you a duty of care.
  • The doctor breached that duty of care through an act of negligence.
  • That breach directly resulted in you suffering injuries.
  • As a result of the injuries, you suffered from damages.

Once your attorney can establish all of these points, you can have peace of mind knowing that your claim is legitimate. You might still have questions, which is why you could benefit from having the help of our Plano, TX medical malpractice attorney. We’re prepared to prove the medical professional was negligent and then guide you through every step of the claims process.
