How do you prove a medical negligence case?
In order to make a successful medical negligence claim, we must have proof that you suffered an injury or illness, or that your condition worsened, because of a lack of duty of care. This means we must have sufficient evidence including but not limited to medical records (we retrieve these for you), photographs of injuries, and a detailed statement from you about what you experienced. In some cases, family members may also be asked to provide their statements about what took place.
We also gather evidence from independent medical experts who prepare reports on your treatment and the results of that treatment. These experts weigh in on whether your treatment was below the usual and expected standard of care, and if that substandard care resulted in your illness or injury. Each of these components is necessary in proving a medical negligence case. Again, your legal team will arrange these expert assessments and will ensure you will not have to pay for these.
