Medical malpractice cases are fiercely fought by the big insurance companies and hospitals. Plus, physicians do not wish to have their reputations blemished because they committed a medical error. The physician will likely feel that a settlement or jury verdict may impact their medical practice and income. Many medical malpractice insurance policies require the consent of the medical provider before a settlement may be reached. This means that your case has to be handled properly so the physician or hospital is convinced that a medical error occurred thereby leading to a consent to settle.
What is Cape May County Medical Malpractice?
Malpractice basically means negligence. The medical provider breached a legal duty that led to harm. The legal elements of a medical malpractice case include a patient-physician relationship creating a duty of care, a breach of that duty and resulting injury or death, meaning the harm was caused by a breach of the duty. Medical providers must meet a “Standard of Care” duty, expressed or implied, set by the medical community including the specialty to which they belong.
