Why You Need a Milford Medical Malpractice Lawyer

Doctors, hospitals, and other medical professionals, or their insurance companies, will have a team of lawyers and experts who fight vigorously on their behalf. Their goal is to keep their record free of any settlement or award for negligence.

Winning a medical malpractice case will often involve exhaustive efforts to:

  • Obtain medical records and documents
  • Interview and depose witnesses
  • Hiring medical experts and more.

Finding a knowledgeable medical malpractice attorney in Milford to represent you will be crucial to proving your claim. They will have the resources needed to make a strong case about the medical provider’s deviation from standards of care.

Proving Medical Malpractice in Milford, CT

To prevail in a medical malpractice action, the following elements must exist:

Doctor-Patient Relationship

This means that you saw the healthcare provider in a professional capacity to receive medical treatment.

Deviation from Standard of Care

The healthcare provider failed to provide a reasonable standard of care. This can mean that the provider’s act, or failure to act, does not match what a reasonable person would have done or not done if in a similar situation. Most medical malpractice cases will hinge on the definition of “standard of medical care,” and will typically require a medical expert to establish what it was in your specific case.

Deviation Resulted in Injuries

A connection must be established between the healthcare provider’s medical negligence and your injuries.

Damages

Finally, you must have experienced actual physical injury and/or financial damages to file a medical malpractice claim in Connecticut. Financial damages can include medical bills for past and future treatment and lost wages. You may also have the option of pursuing non-economic damages, such as pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, permanent disability, disfigurement, and others. Victims of medical malpractice have two years from the date of the injury to file a claim in Connecticut.
