A medical malpractice lawyer is an expert at proving medical professional negligence. In order to prove an individual case, the attorney must demonstrate that:
- There is a relationship between the doctor and the patient;
- The doctor’s care did not meet the standard of care;
- The negligence led to the injury;
- The damages are quantifiable (into “damages”); and
- There is proof “by a preponderance of the evidence” (meaning that the evidence shows the claim is likelier true than untrue).
