Proving Medical Malpractice
In order to win a medical negligence case, a plaintiff must prove all three elements of his or her case. First, a medical plaintiff must prove that the doctor, nurse, hospital or other health care provider failed to provide care and treatment that met the applicable standard of care. From there, the plaintiff must also prove that the improper care was the proximate cause of the injuries and/or death at issue in the case. Finally, a medical malpractice plaintiff must prove and substantiate damages through the presentation of medical bills, lost wages, loss of earning capacity, future medical costs, loss of financial support and other economic damages, and evidence. A plaintiff must also prove noneconomic damages to the jury such as physical and mental pain and suffering, emotional distress, loss of consortium and loss of quality of life.
