Establishing Liability in a Medical Malpractice Case
Not all errors that occur in hospital or clinical settings constitute medical
malpractice. In order to prove that medical malpractice occurred, your
attorney must establish three important facts:
- Your doctor had a duty to provide an appropriate standard of care
- Your healthcare provider breached that duty of care
- You sustained an injury or losses as a result of that breach
If you believe you or a family member were harmed as a result of a healthcare
provider's negligence, a knowledgeable Philadelphia medical malpractice
attorney can advise you on how to best proceed.
Common Examples of Medical Negligence
- Administering too much anesthesia
- Improperly restraining a patient
- Performing the wrong surgery
- Administering the wrong medication
- Failing to order necessary tests
- Failure to monitor patient properly
- Ordering an unnecessary surgery
- Failure to diagnose a serious illness
- Mishandling a child during birth
- Prematurely discharging a patient
