The 4 Elements of Building a Virginia Medical Malpractice Case

On average, there are between 15,000 and 19,000 malpractice suits filed against American doctors each year. If you are the victim of a medical mistake, you might be eligible for compensation. However, building a successful Virginia medical malpractice case is not that simple.

The Four Elements to Building Your Case

If you feel that you are the victim of a medical malpractice mistake, you must be able to prove:

  1. The doctor or healthcare professional owed you a duty of care.
  2. The applicable standard of care was not met and was violated.
  3. You sustained a compensable injury resulting in damaging consequences.
  4. Your injury was the direct result of negligence, a medical error, and/or substandard care. You must be able to prove that you would not have been injured had the healthcare provider not been negligent.
