If you’re happy to go ahead, your expert Lawyer will work on your behalf to prove that the care you received was below the legal “duty of care” standard. To do this they’ll typically look at three things:
This involves proving that your doctor, or the medical professional who treated you, provided care that was below the standard of a competent doctor or professional in the same specialisation. This may also be referred to as “fault” because your healthcare provider failed in their duty to you.
This involves proving that your doctor, therapist or nurse caused your injuries by providing sub-standard care.
