What Is Duty & Breach of Duty in Brooklyn

  • Duty and Breach of Duty are obligations imposed on every health care provider to clarify the case
  • The doctor needs to be completely honest about facts and information
  • The Duty arises from how the patient came to the physician, and how the doctor assessed and responded to the situation explained to them
  • Duty comes from medical literature; what is the Duty on the part of the physician in evaluation?
  • What do journals on specific subject matter provide to those searching for a diagnosis?
  • These journals are written in a way that do not identify a specific standard, but instead identify guidelines and ways of thought
  • Attorneys use all of this to determine the true Duty of a health care professional
