Medical Standard of Care
In many cases, proving that the standard of care expected of medical professionals has not been met is integral to successfully pursing a medical malpractice claim. Typically, these cases are approached from two angles:
- Legal representation solidifies what is considered an appropriate level of medical care that should pertain to this case.
- Show evidence of how the doctor or other medical care professional failed to meet the established standard.
This approach is to prove that there was a level of care that should have been met, and to provide evidence that the level of care fell short of what another doctor of similar training would have provided. By proving both ends of the case, the plaintiff has a strong case against the medical care provider they feel did not meet the proper care standards necessary.
In a similar vein, negligence is an important aspect of a medical malpractice case. After it has been established that the doctor did not meet the level of care, it should be demonstrated in detail how the caregiver fell short. In most cases, a medical expert will weigh in on the subject and discuss relevant information compared to the physical proof of the case. This walks the jury through how the provider was negligent in each stage of care.
