If my doctor was negligent, does that mean I will win my medical malpractice case?
To win a malpractice case requires more than just negligence. Negligence is the first element, but you have to prove that that negligence caused injury or is connected to the injury. Then to have any kind of viable case, there has to be a significant injury. Finally, there has to be a significant way to collect on that case. So, you need negligence, causation, significant damages, and an ability to collect. The answer is negligence alone is not enough.
