Doctors and nurses are often considered among the most knowledgeable and respected members of our community. Unfortunately, not every medical professional acts with their patient’s best interests in mind. Medical malpractice can cause severe injuries and have a significant lasting effect on victims.

The 4 Essential Elements in a New York Medical Malpractice Case
A medical malpractice claim must contain four vital elements to establish the healthcare provider’s liability successfully. The seasoned attorneys at the Law Office of Cohen & Jaffe have extensive experience collecting evidence to prove these elements and building strong claims on your client’s behalf. All viable medical malpractice claims must include the following essential elements:
- The medical professional owed you a professional standard of care
- The medical professional breached the standard of care by acting negligently
- This violation of the standard of care caused your injuries
- You incurred economic and non-economic damages due to your injuries
When a doctor and patient form a professional relationship, the doctor must uphold a high professional standard of care. In other words, they must react and provide care as other equally qualified doctors would in a similar situation. If a doctor violates this standard of care and causes the patient harm, they may be found liable for their injuries through a medical malpractice claim. The final element you must prove is the damages you suffered as a result of your doctor’s negligence. A skilled attorney can help you organize your medical bills and other expenses to prove that you suffered losses due to the healthcare provider’s actions.
