Mistakes resulting in injury
If your doctor made a mistake, you don’t have enough to make a case. You need to be able to show that you received injury or harm because the doctor made a mistake. In order for you to pursue medical malpractice, the doctors’ mistake or “negligence” must result in injury or added physical pain and suffering. For instance, you might have the wrong leg amputated, your disease became worse after treatment, or a standard checkup resulted in death. These are good examples that would result in a medical malpractice case. If your doctor made a mistake and you were not harmed, you won’t have a case. You will need to prove that your injury was a direct result of the doctors’ negligence.
