What Constitutes a Medical Malpractice?

A medical malpractice happens when a patient is injured due to the negligence of a medical professional. A medical malpractice case can only be won if you show that a doctor was negligent. Here are three ways you can determine if you have become victim to a medical malpractice:

  • If the doctor failed to diagnose you or misdiagnosed your condition, this may constitute a medical malpractice case.
  • If the doctor did not follow a proper procedure, you may have a case.
  • If you were not warned of the risks involved with a prescription or procedure, you may have a medical malpractice case.

Other components must also be taken into consideration when determing if you have a medical malpractice such as:

  • The prior doctor-patient relationship
  • Damages incurred due to the injury
