personal injury case. If you are unable to prove negligence, it is very unlikely that
you will be able to successfully pursue financial compensation for the
injuries you have sustained. This is particularly true in cases of
medical malpractice where negligence on the part of a doctor, nurse or other medical practitioner
has resulted in a serious or life-threatening injury. In these types of
cases, it is first necessary to prove that a doctor-patient relationship
did actually exist.
Once that has been established, evidence will need to be gathered to show
negligence or extreme carelessness on the part of the doctor in question.
An honest error or simple mistake is not enough to prove negligence. Doctors
are not expected to be perfect. Doctors are expected to deliver a certain
standard of care and treatment which would be expected from any competent
doctor, with the same level of training and experience, in those exact
circumstances. Expert testimony can often be invaluable in proving doctor
