Medical Malpractice Lawsuit And Technical Defense  

When a doctor is careless and negligent in his profession and as a result causes injury to the patient, then it is considered as a medical malpractice.

Under these circumstances, a doctor can be sued by the patient. Plaintiffs, who go for medical malpractice lawsuits, should also be able to prove that the healthcare professional was negligent while providing care and breached the duty of care.

There are several categories in medical malpractice and malpractice by itself does not relate to only care given by the professional. A medical professional can be held for malpractice even for misconduct in behavior or torturous behavior towards a patient.

In a malpractice lawsuit when the professional is sued for medical malpractice, there are some basic fundamental patterns that have to be proven by the plaintiff. These include, but are not limited to, negligence in duty of care, breach of duty, cause of injury and injury. Only then the case can proceed further. However, the healthcare professional can defend himself by using affirmative defense, which means that the professional accepts that he or she has been negligent but the negligent was not deliberate.

Technical defense is another way for the medical professional to prove his innocence where an expert witness is used to give testimony supporting the defendant. Medical malpractice cases are usually very technical in nature and they cannot be decided by the judge and jury alone based on the evidence provided. An expert witness is often used so that the case can be validated on the basis of the expert witness' knowledge and the actual medical facts.
