What do I need to prove in order to sue my physician/pharmacist/psychiatrist for medication errors in Kentucky?

Doctors, psychiatrists, pharmacists, and other medical professionals are given the very important task of lending their expertise to help us when we are sick or suffering from a disease. If they fail due to medication errors, lack of care, or somehow cause an injury, they must be held accountable. This is something with which a Kentucky medical malpractice attorney can help.

4 Factors to Prove in Your Case

In order for a medical malpractice case to have any merit, it must contain 4 factors:
 
  • Duty of Care: Once your doctor agrees to treat you, they have a duty to provide acceptable care.
  • Breach of Duty: This part of a medical malpractice case is harder to prove, but it is very important. You must show that the medical expert in question somehow neglected to give you quality care to treat your illness. Resulting Injury: You need to prove that it was because of the doctor’s mistakes that you suffered certain injuries.
  • Causation: Essentially, this means demonstrating that the injuries you suffered were the direct result of your doctor’s lack of care.

It’s important to be aware of common medical mistakes in order to weigh whether or not your case is worth pursuing. When it comes to suing a medical professional over medication errors, you may encounter challenges. If the mistake was caught soon enough without causing lasting harm, you may not have much of a medical malpractice case.

However, it is feasible that these errors may create needless injuries when the medical professionals are obviously negligent. Each case is different and deserves individual attention based on the facts of the case.
