When you or a loved one seek medical treatment from a physician, you expect that he or she will render competent, skilled medical treatment. But if your physician fails to provide you with the level and kind of care that other reasonable doctors would offer in the same circumstances and you or your loved one suffer some sort of harm, such as a worsening of your condition, unnecessary medical treatment, the requirement for more invasive or painful treatment, or even death, you deserve to seek compensation from your physician for the injuries and damages that his or her malpractice has caused you.

Maybe. Many physicians are not employed by the hospitals they work in; instead, the physicians are independent contractors who maintain their own separate medical practices. If your physician is employed by the hospital, you can hold the hospital vicariously liable for the physician’s negligence under the doctrine of respondeat superior. If the physician was not employed by the hospital, you may be able to hold the hospital responsible for its own negligence, if you can show that the hospital was negligent in credentialing the physician.
In order to prove a medical malpractice claim, you will need to prove four elements. First, you will need to establish that the physician had a duty to act (or not act) in your specific case; this duty of care is usually defined as the actions that another reasonable physician of similar training and experience would have undertaken under identical circumstances. Next, you must also show how the physician’s actions fell below the required duty of care. Typically, you must rely on the testimony of medical experts to establish the applicable duty of care in your case and how your physician’s conduct fell below this standard. Next, you must prove that your physician’s actions caused you to suffer injury; even if your physician acted or failed to act in a negligent manner, it is not malpractice if the outcome of your treatment would have been no different had your physician acted properly. Finally, your injuries must have caused you to suffer some sort of financially compensable damages.
