How Do You Know if You Have a Medical Malpractice Claim?

If you developed HELLP syndrome while you were pregnant and your doctor failed to diagnose your condition, you may have grounds for a medical malpractice claim. However, you will need to prove the following four facts to secure compensation in your lawsuit.

  • The at-fault medical provider owed you and your child a duty of care.
  • The at-fault provider breached his or her duty of care in some way. You will need to prove that another medical professional would have accurately diagnosed your condition under the same circumstances.
  • The at-fault provider’s actions caused you and your child’s HELLP syndrome complications and resulting injuries.
  • You and your child sustained damages due to the healthcare provider’s failure to diagnose your condition. Damages may include medical expenses, pain and suffering, and rehabilitation costs.

If you believe you have grounds for a HELLP syndrome claim, speak to a Kansas City medical malpractice attorney as soon as possible.
