Moxie Law Group Has What It Takes in Court

and at Utah Supreme Court

Many people find it difficult to imagine themselves as victims of medical malpractice, especially in a first world country. However, each year, an estimated 250,000 people will die each year due to a doctor’s negligence. And, those numbers don’t even consider the people who sustained serious or life-altering injuries due to medical malpractice. Medical malpractice is, unfortunately, a very common occurrence in the American healthcare system. If you’ve been a victim of medical malpractice, you deserve the chance to begin the healing process as soon as possible.

There are four elements to a medical malpractice claim: duty, breach of duty, damages, and causation. For a successful medical malpractice claim, you will need to prove each of the four elements. If you suspect you’ve been a victim of medical malpractice, you can start working on your case by getting a second opinion from another doctor. Documenting your symptoms and physical ailments in great detail, compiling medical bills and records, and consulting an attorney, can help you build your case.

In cases of medical malpractice, duty is much easier to prove than in other cases of negligence. Because of the patient-doctor relationship, a doctor’s duty of care is already established. However, a doctor’s duty of care is different from the duty of care in other circumstances. In medicine, doctors are held to the standard of other reasonable physicians. And, specialists are held to even higher standards than general practitioners.

A duty of care is breached when the doctor fails to uphold the standard of care. There are several ways a doctor can fall short from the established standards, and the consequences can range from inconvenient to fatal. Getting a second opinion from another doctor who can testify that they would have acted differently may help you prove a breach of duty. 

After proving duty of care, and breach of duty, you will need to prove causation. This means that you will need to prove that the doctor has been negligent and their negligence resulted in damage. Test results, other doctors’ testimonies, documentation of ailments, and other medical records may help you prove that your damages were caused by medical malpractice.

Finally, you will need to prove that there were damages. Having medical bills compiled and organized will help you prove damages. You may also want to gather pay stubs if you can demonstrate a loss of income. If you are the family member of a loved one who has passed away due to medical malpractice, you may be entitled to compensation for funeral expenses as well.
