How Do You Win a Medical Malpractice Lawsuit?

In order to win a medical malpractice lawsuit, you must prove that your doctors and medical personnel breached their health-care duty by showing evidence of the following aspects: your doctor-patient relationship, your doctors' negligence, that their negligence caused injury, that they are guilty for improper treatment or diagnosis, etc. Additionally, by hiring a medical malpractice attorney you improve your chances of winning your lawsuit.

If you are the subject of a medical malpractice case, you should take all the necessary measures in order to prove that a medical professional was negligent in offering care or treatment. Generally speaking, an injured patient must be able to prove the following:

  • the existence of a doctor-patient relationship and a duty owed by the health care professional to the patient (plaintiff);
  • breach of the duty of care which means that you have to prove medical professional's deviation from the applicable standard of care;
  • a causal connection showing the actual medical deviation from the standard of care and the injury of the patient;
  • proof of the damages or injuries suffered (physical, financial, psychological or otherwise);

Florida medical malpractice law is very complicated and specialized. If you think that you might have a valid claim, contact a medical malpractice attorney as soon as possible.
