  • Lubbock, TX (1888PressRelease) February 27, 2016 - Medical malpractice is a legal cause of action that occurs when a medical professional deviates from standards in his or her profession, thereby causing injury to a patient. Most medical malpractice cases proceed under the theory that a medical professional was negligent while treating the patient.

    To establish medical negligence, an injured patient, their relatives, must prove:
    - The existence of a duty owed by the health care professional to the plaintiff (for example, a doctor/patient relationship);

    - The applicable standard of care, and the health care professional's deviation from that standard, which is a breach of the duty owed the patient;

    - A causal connection between the health care professional's deviation from the standard of care and the patient's injury;

    - Injury to the patient.

    Tort reform laws have made cases procedurally more difficult, resulting in a number of delays and waiting periods that a medical malpractice lawyer is now required by law to observe. Some of these required waiting periods include:

    - The plaintiff is required to inform the defendant of the intention to file a court case.

    - The plaintiff must then wait 60 days before filing the lawsuit.

    - The defendant is allowed 20 days to file an answer to the case.

    - For 120 days after the defendant's answer is filed, nothing can happen with the case. (This is generally the time when the courts and the defense resolve any issues with filed case or with the expert witness testimony.)
