We should be able to place the utmost trust in medical professionals. They receive more training than those in any other profession. But that doesn’t mean they can’t make mistakes. Did you know medical errors are the third leading cause of death in the United States? If you believe you’ve been a victim of such a scenario, we’ll need to be able to prove it in court. With these resources at your disposal, we can prove medical malpractice.
Physical proof of medical malpractice is often the most convincing form of evidence in a medical malpractice lawsuit. Unfortunately, not all damages are simple to prove in this way. But if malpractice ended up causing an injury, you may have plenty of physical evidence to share.
You may be able to share photographs of an injury, such as scarring. You may also have required additional medical attention as a result, in which case your medical bills may serve as a form of physical proof.
In cases where physical proof is lacking or could use bolstering, witnesses will be the best tool at your disposal to prove medical malpractice. Witnesses can take many forms. Perhaps there was another medical professional in the room at the time who can attest to the doctor’s negligence. Or maybe your family members could give testament to your changed behavior and psychological pain following the incident.
There is also another kind of witness you should be aware of: expert witnesses. These are not necessarily people who viewed your injury or its aftermath. Instead, they are people with the requisite expertise to testify that malpractice took place. Generally, an expert witness will take the form of a licensed medical professional in a role comparable to the negligent one.
Medical records are of the utmost importance in our quest to prove medical malpractice. Of course, this could be for the reason we mentioned earlier—giving testament to the medical attention you received as a result of your injury.
But there’s another reason medical records are so vital to examine in medical malpractice lawsuits. Malpractice frequently occurs because a doctor failed to properly inspect your medical history in the first place. If we can pinpoint pertinent information that the doctor neglected to take note of, it will bolster your case.
