Medical Malpractice

WHEN ERRORS INJURE YOU

Thousands of people are injured or die as a result of medical malpractice or negligence every year.

Medical malpractice occurs when a health care provider deviates from the recognized “standard of care” in the treatment of a patient.

A recent Johns Hopkins study shows that medical errors are the third-leading cause of death in this country, only surpassed by heart disease and cancer.

Why do I need a personal injury attorney for my medical malpractice case?

To prove liability and recover damages in medical malpractice cases, a personal injury attorney must prove an unacceptable “standard of care” was provided as defined by others in the medical profession. A medical malpractice attorney will locate, review and select the appropriate medical experts who will locate all pertinent medical records, review the medical records and form an opinion as to whether the defendant breached the accepted standard of care.

The Florida Medical Malpractice statute applies to any health care provider, including chiropractors.

How much time do I have to file my medical malpractice case?

In Florida, there is a two-year statute of limitations for filing a medical malpractice claim, so in order to protect your rights and possibly recover damages, it’s important to have a personal injury attorney review your options as soon as possible.
