Just because you were injured due to the carelessness or negligence of a doctor in Delaware does not mean that you have a legitimate medical malpractice case. According to Delaware Medical Malpractice Law 3 conditions need to be met in order for your case to have merit. These are:
1. That there was negligence on the part of the hospital, doctor, physician, lab or clinic.
2. It must be ascertained that the negligence resulted in injury or death
3. It must be proved that the injury or loss resulted in damages
If these 3 factors can be determined than you may have a Delaware medical malpractice case. You should speak to an experienced Delaware Medical Malpractice Lawyer to determine what your case is worth and what damages you may be awarded.
