Medical Negligence

Improper, unskilled, or negligent treatment of a patient by a physician, dentist, nurse, pharmacist, or other health care professional can possibly create a basis for medical negligence.

A person who alleges negligent medical malpractice must prove four elements:

  1. A duty of care was owed by the physician
  2. The physician violated the applicable standard of care
  3. The person suffered a compensable injury
  4. The injury was caused in fact and proximately caused by the substandard conduct.

The burden of proving these elements is on the plaintiff in a malpractice lawsuit.
