Proving Medical Malpractice

Hospitals and their medical staff are well-defended by medical insurance companies and teams of lawyers set on saving money. It is crucial that you pick the right lawyer to pursue compensation in these complex cases. At Breit Cantor Grana Buckner, our Virginia medical malpractice lawyers are dedicated to thorough investigation, so we work with a network of professionals in order to gather substantial evidence in your favor.

Proving medical malpractice occurred requires the following elements:

  • That a doctor-patient relationship was formally in place
  • That the doctor or other health care provider failed to fulfill his or her duty of care to the patient
  • That the doctor’s negligence directly caused injury to the patient
  • That the injury led to specific damages and loss

Essentially, it must be proven that the health care professional failed to do what any other reasonable medical professional would have done in the same circumstance and that the patient suffered loss as a direct result. Some examples of a failed duty of care would include failing to properly diagnose a medical condition, failing to properly treat a problem, causing an injury or failing to warn a patient of significant risks.

What To Do If You've Been Injured by a Negligent Medical Professional

An unsettling fact about medical malpractice is that a significant percentage of malpractice is committed by a small percentage of health care providers. Often, insurance companies and doctors insist on confidential settlements, keeping the public in the dark about their errors and costly mistakes. Before choosing a doctor, it is wise to do some research. We recommend checking information about potential physicians on Virginia’s Board of Medicine website. Most states have a similar board of medicine where patients can look up physician information and see if they have any paid malpractice claims or other marks on their record.

The medical malpractice insurance industry and health care providers constantly work to pass laws that limit the amounts a patient can recover if he or she is negligently injured by a medical professional or hospital. Our lawyers constantly work with organizations that are dedicated to protecting the rights of victims across the nation. Join us in taking action against these laws by contacting the appropriate legislators and voicing your opposition to these efforts.
