What do I need to prove to win my Rhode Island medical malpractice case?Return to Videos
When a doctor commits malpractice, it’s considered to be a form of negligence. It’s a form of professional negligence. This means that the doctor’s conduct, in performing whatever procedure it was, fell below the standards of care. In order to win, you need to have another doctor familiar with those standards of care testify to what they were, testify that they were violated and that the doctor’s performance was deficient, and that the reason you suffered the injuries that you did suffer was because of that violation of the standard of care.
