Health care professionals are required to act prudently when administering care to their patients. Most medical malpractice cases depend on whether a health care professional was negligent in the treatment of a patient or failed to treat a patient. Whether a health care professional was negligent is measured by the medical standard of care that a reasonably competent and skilled health care professional, with similar background in the same medical community would have provided under similar circumstances.
In a medical malpractice case a patient must prove that a health care provider either failed to do something which a reasonably prudent health care provider would have done, or that (s)he did something that should not have been done and that that failure or action caused injury to the patient. A departure from good and accepted care by the health care professional is what needs to be proved and that it was that departure that caused the injuries claimed.
The medical malpractice of a health care professional can lead to permanent disabilities or death. These injuries can lead to a life time of physical pain, prohibit the victim from earning a living, enjoying their life and disrupting their family. They can also lead to a lifetime of necessary medical care with huge costs.
