The doctor-patient relationship- is the easiest of the three to establish; the relationship develops when your doctor performs any examination corroborated by medical records. 

●     Failure to follow the standard of care- You must verify that the doctor deviated from the proper care standard. The standard of care is the standard protocol that doctors typically follow in assessing or caring for a patient. Failure to follow the standard protocol can be deemed negligence. 

●     Negligence is the primary factor- In addition to proving negligence, you must also prove that your suffering was due to that negligence.
