When physicians, surgeons, and other healthcare professionals fail to uphold the standard of care that the profession demands, they can be liable for their actions if they cause injury.
Eligibility to File a Medical Malpractice Claim
Even though doctors and surgeons have had years of rigorous training, and even though the medical field is highly regulated, medical mistakes can and do happen. When patients suffer injury as the result of a practitioner’s negligence, they can file a medical malpractice claim against the appropriate party to seek reimbursement for the damages they suffered.
If a medical professional was negligent in exercising an acceptable standard of care, the victim might have a valid case to pursue if he or she suffered injury and damages as a result. If the physician was negligent but you did not suffer damages, you may not pursue a medical malpractice case.
