What Constitutes Medical Malpractice?

You may wonder if what you experienced was medical malpractice. To have an eligible medical malpractice claim, your lawyer will review your case to see if the following points happened:

  • Doctor-Patient Relationship. The medical care provider agreed to treat you. This establishes the doctor-patient relationship.
  • Standard of Care. The doctor needs to treat you within the standard of care, or how competent medical professionals with similar education could have treated you.
  • Negligent Treatment. You were not treated within the standard of care and the care caused harm.
  • Injuries and Losses. You sustained further injuries and damages because of the care you received.

You need to be able to show those points above to have an eligible claim. So, instances that don’t qualify as medical malpractice include overhearing medical advice at a social gathering, or looking something up online. As your El Paso, TX medical malpractice lawyer investigates your case, we’ll gather evidence to prove you have a valid claim.
