You Hold the Burden of Proof in Your Medical Malpractice Case
Before you contact our office, please understand some of the general factors related to your burden of proof that must be met in order to pursue your medical malpractice case. You must have actually suffered an injury, and that injury must be serious and/or be likely to result in substantial long-term damage. The medical professional in question must have failed to adhere to the standard of skill and care expected from a similarly trained and experienced professional under similar circumstances as when you were injured. In addition, you must prove that you would not have otherwise been injured, except for the negligence of the medical professional to adhere to proper standards of care. It also must be shown that your injury more than likely occurred as a direct result of the healthcare providers negligence (via act or omission). The statute of limitations to file a medical malpractice lawsuit is two years from the date of the loss.
