When a doctor or other health professional has caused an injury by providing care that is not up to the accepted standards of the profession, the person who has been injured may be able to pursue a medical malpractice lawsuit. To win a lawsuit, you must prove that not only did the doctor or nurse act in a way that is below the accepted standards, but also that the doctor’s or nurse’s error caused the injury (or death in wrongful death cases).
