Criteria for malpractice attorney's taking a potential case !

The standard of review for medical negligence is whether there was "a departure from accepted practice" in the medical care you received that was "a substantial factor" in causing significant harm - in a delayed diagnosis case, the medical negligence needs to be shown to have permitted your condition to worsen substantially, and consequently significantly reduced your chance of a better outcome.
