Well, you’re going to need to prove what you would in a typical negligence case. This would be a breach of duty, proximate cause, and injuries. In addition, you’re also going to need an expert testimony. You’re going to need another doctor in that profession and if you had a hip replacement or knee replacement and you think it went bad, you’re going to need an orthopedic surgeon to come in and say, “Well, this doctor didn’t follow this standard and this is why no and this what he should have done or she should have done in this field.”
You’re going to need expert testimony on top of the normal elements for a negligence case.
A medical malpractice suit is something that is highly complex and you need a very experienced attorney for medical malpractice claims.
