3 Questions About Medical Malpractice | What is Breach of Duty?

3 Questions About Medical Malpractice | What is Causation
Many people want to know what the causation aspect of a case is. You have to have not only substandard care but that substandard care in and of itself doesn’t cause damages. Causation means that the substandard care, the mistake, also results in damages physical and emotional to you as a victim of medical malpractice.
3 Questions About Medical Malpractice | What is Failure to Diagnose?
When you have a medical condition, you present with certain physical signs and traits as well as complaints of symptoms. When enough signs are present and accompanied by a clinical presentation of symptoms then a physician is obligated to recognize those signs and symptoms and diagnose your condition. When that doesn’t happen and it leads to physical damages or worsening of the condition, then that failure to diagnose is actionable.
