When a patient enters a hospital or doctor’s office, they put their health in the hands of professionals and trust they’ll receive competent care. Medical malpractice and medical negligence are the legal terms that describe when healthcare professionals breach that trust by providing substandard care. For victims, the consequences of medical malpractice can be significant and far-reaching, including serious injury or even death.

Any medical malpractice claim in Connecticut begins with a legal concept called the “prevailing professional standard of care,” which describes the level of care and skill a competent healthcare professional must provide to a patient.
For a successful medical malpractice claim, you must show that the healthcare provider made a mistake or even that their patient had an unexpectedly poor outcome. Connecticut law requires proof that the healthcare provider’s actions, or lack of action, fell short of the professional standard of care and that this negligence was the direct cause of the patient’s injury or harm.
This is why medical malpractice lawsuits rely heavily on the testimony of highly qualified medical professionals in the same field as the defendant. These specialists can play a crucial role in strengthening the victim’s case by analyzing the facts and preparing a professional opinion explaining how the defendant’s actions deviated from the appropriate protocol.
