How to Know If You Qualify for a Malpractice Claim
Day in and day out, Hampton & King handles birth injury and medical malpractice claims for plaintiffs. Over the years, we have come to understand the ins and outs of these cases: what the judge looks for, what type of evidence to present, and what the defendants will do. If you or someone you love believes they have a medical malpractice or birth injury case, consider the following questions:
- Was there a duty owed to the patient? This describes a doctor-patient relationship where the doctor (or other healthcare professional) had a duty to care for his or her patient.
- Was that duty breached? This describes a deviation from the acceptable standard of care.
- Did the breach of duty result in damages? Meaning the healthcare professionalâ€™s conduct or inaction resulted in serious injuries or wrongful death.
- Did the breach of duty directly cause the damages? In order for a medical malpractice or birth injury case to have merit, the plaintiff must show causation.
If you believe that a medical professional's negligence or wrongdoing directly contributed to serious injuries or wrongful death, then you may have a case! Tell us what happened to you.
