Evidence That May Support Your Claim
What exactly can be used as evidence in your claim against a doctor or
medical institution? Even though it might not be obvious, there are many
ways you can prove that a doctor did you harm through negligence. Our
Springfield, MO medical malpractice attorneys are careful to gather and
analyze what we can, all to improve your odds of getting a maximized compensation.
Evidence we can use to your advantage may include:
- Your own medical records
- Close-circuit television footage from the hospital
- Career history of negligent doctor
- Second opinions from other physicians
Acceptable Standards of Care
No one can be expected to always be perfect all the time. To some extent,
a doctor does have liability protections against “reasonable”
mistakes. If you want your medical malpractice claim to be successful,
it needs to be shown that the doctor did not use or follow acceptable
standards of care.
In other words, the medical physician must have gone outside normal protocols
or procedures, knowingly or accidentally. Such behavior indicates either
negligence or recklessness, which is the groundwork of an injury claim.
You will also need to prove that you had a doctor-patient relationship
with the physician, and that the harm caused actually led to measurable damages.
