How Common Is Medical Malpractice?
When medical or surgical mistakes occur, they can result in serious injury,
lifelong disability, or even
death. Medical mistakes are currently the number-three cause of death in the U.S.
To put these numbers in perspective:
- Every year, preventable accidents in hospitals lead to over 210,000 deaths
- Over 440,000 patients suffer injuries due to preventable errors every year
Responsibility & the Burden of Proof
Doctors, nurses, hospital staff, and other healthcare professionals should
make the safety of their patients their top priority. They have a duty
to exercise due care and proper caution at each stage of a patient’s
treatment. Every patient has the right to expect such care from their
As in other types of
personal injury claims, the burden of proof in medical malpractice claims falls to the
plaintiff, or the person bringing the claim. To prove a medical malpractice
case, you must show that a healthcare provider failed to provide the acceptable
standard of care; a poor outcome alone is not sufficient to bring a case.
Proving your case will typically involve proving all the following elements:
- A doctor-patient relationship existed
- The doctor (or healthcare provider) made a mistake, was negligent, or otherwise
failed to uphold the standard of acceptable care
- The doctor/healthcare provider’s failure to uphold the standard of
care caused your injury (or illness, condition, etc.)
- You suffered damages, whether economic or non-economic in nature
While proving malpractice on the part of a doctor, hospital, or medical
professional may often prove difficult, the experienced Connecticut medical
malpractice attorneys at Carter Mario Law Firm can help you find the answers
you need. We often work with expert witnesses and other professionals
who can help us establish negligence or misconduct and detail the extent
of your damages. We work directly with our clients to help ensure that
