What is Medical Malpractice?

Medical malpractice is negligence by a doctor or medical professional which causes injury or damage to you.  The elements of medical malpractice are duty, breach, proximate cause, and injury.  Medical professionals owe their patients a duty to act as a reasonable prudent provider under the same circumstances.  Typically duty is a straight forward element to a claim.  The second and most difficult is a breach of that duty.  A plaintiff must prove that the healthcare professional did not exercise the correct duty of care and committed a mistake or error.  That error must cause (or be the proximate cause) of your injury.  lastly you must establish that you have actual injuries.  If you have questions about medical malpractice, call Krupp Law Offices PC.  We would be happy to answer all your questions.
