Proving that your family member died as a result of medical malpractice
can be very difficult. You must be able to prove that the patient had
a good chance of surviving any existing medical issues; otherwise, the
courts may not believe that the medical provider was at fault.
Excluding Alternative Causes of Death
For example, consider a case in which a patient has a life-threatening
issue that leaves them in danger of death even after a successful surgery.
If a doctor makes a surgical error, and the patient dies, then it is difficult
to prove that it was as a result of the doctor's error, rather than
a result of the life-threatening disease.
To prove fault in a medical malpractice claim, the family must show that:
- The medical malpractice caused the death, or at least pain and suffering
during the patient's life.
- The damages cost a certain amount of money (for medical bills, emotional
pain and suffering, loss of financial support, etc.)
