Medical malpractice is said to exist when a health care provider deviates from the accepted standards of practice thereby causing injury to a patient. For a medical malpractice suit to flourish, four elements of tort negligence must be proved. First, that duty is owed; second, that this duty is breached. The third element that must be shown to exist is that the breach of duty must have caused an injury. This brings us to the element, which is that damage exists.
