Medical Negligence

In order to prove medical negligence, 4 elements must be met:

1. The physician had a duty to the patient
2. There is a breach of that duty
3. There have been damages sustained
4. Those damages are as a result of the breach of duty (This is known as causation and is often the most crucial part of a malpractice trial)
