Your case must be proven by expert medical testimony. A doctor or medical provider in the same specialty as the negligent provider must be willing to testify that the conduct of the defendant fell below the accepted standard of care. Sometimes this is extremely hard to come by, even in cases in which the negligence is obvious.
In addition to negligence, you must be able to show that you suffered injury from the error and have suffered damages. Because of the tremendous hurdles in obtaining a recovery in a medical malpractice case, most experienced medical malpractice attorneys agree that the injury suffered must be significant.
