Robotic surgery is a burgeoning field of medical study that experts believe can change many surgical procedures and treatment options. However, this technology is, and will always be, in a constant state of development and invention—and mistakes can be made.

Medical malpractice claims are complex for a number of reasons, not least of which is the complications inherent in proving that medical malpractice has, in fact, occurred. A poor outcome is not sufficient to bring a claim; rather, you will need to show that a medical provider failed to meet what is known as the standard of care. The standard of care is the level of care that another competent medical provider could have been reasonably expected to provide. When a provider fails to meet the standard of care and the patient is injured or dies as a result, this constitutes medical malpractice.
You will also need to prove that the failure to meet the standard of care is the proximate cause of your injuries. In other words, you must prove that the negligent provider’s actions or inactions are what actually caused your injuries/suffering.
