  • Episode 16: Medical Negligence: When does a provider have a duty to care?

    14 November 2018

    To succeed with a medical malpractice case a plaintiff must provide evidence of negligence through establishing four elements: duty, breach, injury and damages. When the provider and a patient establish a professional relationship, the provider has a responsibility to provide a reasonable treatment plan. This is the element of duty. Our expert legal panel will analyze the provider-patient relationship and discuss relevant medical malpractice cases examining the duty to provide care. The panel will provide insight on when a duty typically does not arise as with independent medical exams, employee physicals and workers' compensation exams. We will explore professional liability insurance contract language, terms and conditions to be carefully understood when considering the element of duty.
