Successful medical malpractice cases share these three qualities: 

There’s been a violation of the standard of care. Certain medical standards are recognized by the laws of Connecticut and New York as being acceptable medical treatment. As a patient you have the right to expect care consistent with these standards. Negligence can be proven if the standards of care were not met.

An injury was caused by the negligence. Along with a proven violation in the standard of care, a medical malpractice case must prove that the patient sustained an injury that would not have occurred without negligence on the part of the medical professional.

The injury resulted in significant damages. Because medical malpractice lawsuits are expensive to litigate, for the case to be winnable the attorney must show that the injury resulted in disability, loss of income, unusual pain, suffering and hardship, or significant past and future medical bills.
