Understanding Medical Malpractice
One of the most important things to know about medical malpractice cases in Florida is the statute of limitation is short. It’s two years. Not everybody knows that they’re a victim of malpractice when they suffer adverse consequences of some medical procedure. It may pop up later. As soon as you are aware that you have an adverse reaction to some medical procedure, you should check with a lawyer like ours that specializes in medical malpractice claims so that you do not allow the statute of limitations to run, because if you do, then your claim is forever barred.
Medical Malpractice Case Going to Trial
In Florida, the question comes up is whether or not the case must go to trial. The answer is no. Actual statistics show that less than 2% of all cases actually proceed to trial, this includes medical malpractice cases. Most cases settle at some point during the process. The chances of actually having a trial are small but a firm as ours is very willing and able to try a case when necessary.
Medical Malpractice Attorney Fees
Our firm handles medical malpractice claims on a contingency fee basis, meaning there are no upfront fees or costs. Our firm advances the costs and we only get a fee in the event we make a recovery for our client. There’s no out of pocket expenses to the client, unless there’s an actual case pursued, and a recovery made.
Medical Malpractice Case Timeline
In Florida, a medical malpractice case generally is one of the longest cases to resolve. They’re very propagated. They’re very complex and very expensive. Average time would probably be two to four years minimum, even longer if there are appeals so be ready for a long drawn out fight with the medical professional that made the malpractice.
