When a doctor, nurse, dentist or other medical professional fails to perform his or her duties at the accepted standard of care, he or she may be liable for medical malpractice. To determine whether you have a valid medical malpractice claim, you must first show evidence of a clear doctor-patient relationship. You will also be required to prove some form of negligence, a negligent disregard for the proper, required medical procedures or carelessness on the part of the medical professional.
If you are unhappy with your doctor as he or she failed to deliver the level of care and treatment you would expect to receive, that is insufficient grounds for a medical malpractice claim or lawsuit. As long as your doctor or medical professional provided a reasonable level of expertise and care, he or she has done a sufficient job in the eyes of the medical and the law. It is only in instances where injury or harm has been caused as a result of clear negligence or incompetence will there be grounds for a medical malpractice claim.
