Elements of a malpractice case

 

The Plaintiff must establish all four elements of the tort of negligence for a successful medical malpractice claim.

1. A duty was owed - a legal duty exists whenever a hospital or health care provider undertakes care or treatment of a Patient.

2. A duty was breached – the provider failed to conform to the relevant standard of care. The standard of care is proved by expert testimony.

3. The breach caused an injury – The breach of duty was a proximate cause of the injury.

4. Damages – Without damages (losses which may be pecuniary or emotional), there is no basis for a claim, regardless of whether the medical provider was negligent.
