Continue reading to learn more about when you might have grounds for a medical malpractice claim in Idaho and some of the more common types of medical malpractice seen in Idaho civil courts. 

What Constitutes Medical Malpractice in Idaho?

To win your Idaho medical malpractice lawsuit, your lawyer will need to be able to show there was a breach in the standard of care. The healthcare provider must have had an obligation to provide the patient in question with medical care, and then breached that care through negligence or errors. But how will you know if there has been a breach in the standard of care? 

It may be difficult to know. Especially if your healthcare provider says your injury or illness was caused by a side effect or risk associated with a treatment you received. The law states the standard of care is breached when a medical provider makes a mistake that one of their peers would not have made. 

Your medical malpractice lawyer will gather the evidence you need to prove the standard of care was breached, and that you were a victim of medical malpractice.
