Successfully Proving Medical Negligence
You believe that a doctor, nurse or other medical professional’s lack of care harmed you — but you do not know how to prove it. In addition to feeling physically unwell from your injury, you also feel overwhelmed trying to bring the negligent party to justice.
The medical malpractice firm of Robert T. Bergin Jr., P.A., has more than 30 years of experience helping Florida clients who have suffered due to the negligence of medical providers. We know the intricate steps to take to research, identify and prove any negligence that may have contributed to your injury. Then, we can work to obtain monetary compensation for you.
What Is The Definition Of Medical Negligence?
Many people believe that any less-than-positive medical result is an instance of negligence, but this is not true. Medical negligence actually has a specific legal definition. Medical negligence occurs when a medical professional or facility fails to meet the accepted standard of care, resulting in harm to a patient.
How We Can Identify And Prove Fault
For anyone not experienced in this field of law, it is very difficult to identify — and then prove — that medical negligence took place. At Robert T. Bergin Jr., P.A., we know how to investigate complex medical cases and identify any negligence that may have occurred. Generally, we must demonstrate these criteria:
- Your medical provider owed you a duty of care
- They did not provide that level of care
- Their lack of care contributed to your injury
- You suffered harm because of their actions
Because we have over four decades of experience, we know how to concisely and persuasively demonstrate negligence. To bolster your case, we may interview other medical professionals, request extensive records, interview your health care providers and hire expert witnesses. Every strategy we use is designed to obtain the most favorable results available to you.
