Navigating The Complexity Of Medical Malpractice Cases

Medical malpractice cases are notoriously difficult to litigate. The burden of proof is on you, to demonstrate that the medical professional who harmed you deviated from an acceptable standard of care. Determining the standard of care typically requires the testimony of an expert medical witness.

Once you have proven that the medical professional in question failed to act in accordance with acceptable standards of care, you must prove that their actions or failure to act caused you physical harm. Causation is significantly more difficult to prove than most people think.

Why? Because oftentimes the defense will argue that unfortunate medical outcomes can be the result of a variety of factors, from genetic predispositions to workplace or living conditions, as opposed to malpractice.
