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 healthcare providers.

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 their voices are heard.
