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.
