Has There Been a Case of Negligence or Malpractice?

negligence civil lawyerFor negligence to occur, four elements must be proven in court by your civil lawyer. 

  1. Duty of Care: The duty owed is the expected standard of care an ordinary person would expect to receive from a professional in the same circumstances that occurred between the plaintiff and the defendant.
  2. Breach: A breach occurs when there is a deviation from the expected standard of care. When a professional takes action or fails to take action as expected, they can be deemed to have breached the duty of care.
  3. Causation: If there has been financial loss or physical harm that has resulted from a duty of care breach, your civil lawyer must be able to prove that this breach has directly caused the loss or injury.
  4. Harm: The plaintiff must be able to prove that they have, in fact, been harmed or suffered financially due to the breach or accused malpractice. If harm is confirmed, your civil lawyer can pursue damages via a civil suit.
