Can I sue in a medical malpractice case for what might have happened?
No, medical malpractice cases, in order to be filed and litigated, require two things. One, a violation in standard of care. Two, damages or injuries directly related or caused by that violation of the standard of care. However, in cases where malpractice doesn’t rise to the level of pursuing a lawsuit, we encourage people who’ve been wronged or harmed, or have concerns, to file a complaint with the department of health medical board. The link to that complaint form is available on our website.
