A: Please consult with an experienced medical malpractice attorney. In order to bring a successful medical malpractice claim, the plaintiff must prove that the healthcare professional failed to adhere to the standard, was responsible for the care, and provided care negligently. Experts must certify that the healthcare professional made a mistake that other reasonable doctors would have not made under similar circumstances. The plaintiff would have to prove that such a professional mistake caused the injury and but for the healthcare professional mistake the injury would not have happened. A Plaintiff must prove real injury and real damages that are given a monetary value. Experts usually testify as to the value of the physical damage, medical providers' negligence, lost wages, and medical bills.
