Santa Maria Medical Malpractice Attorney

About Medical Malpractice

Anyone that has sustained bodily harm or damage due to the negligent or substandard care of a doctor or medical practitioner is a victim of medical malpractice.  There are four areas to a medical malpractice case that must be established by a skilled Santa Maria personal injury attorney:

  • Duty: a doctor or medical practitioner has a legal duty to his or her patients.  He or she must have reasonably adequate skill and knowledge in the area he or she is working in.  The standard of comparison for a doctor or medical practitioner is another doctor or practitioner in the same field with adequate skill.  The practitioner should utilize medical judgment that is not harmful and is comparable to another practitioner in his or her field with average medical knowledge. 
  • Breach of Duty: a breach of duty is defined as a break or neglect of the above duty.  This is done by performing harmful procedures on the patient or failing to provide adequate medical care that another in the same field with average skill would be able to provide.
  • Injury: the breach of duty must be shown to have caused injury to the patient
  • Damages: there must be damages such as emotional or financial damages in order to file a claim.  The damages must have come about as a result of negligent medical care or medical malpractice.
