Medical malpractice claims are very different than car accidents, slip and falls, or other personal injury claims. Florida law places strict limitations on claims against health care providers. This fact makes malpractice cases more challenging for injury victims to prevail than in other personal injury cases. But with the right attorney, it’s far from impossible.
When you visit your doctor, you have the right to expect a thorough evaluation and accurate diagnosis of any serious medical issues. Unfortunately, this doesn’t always happen. Not receiving the proper diagnosis can have devastating effects on your health or even your life, especially when the failure to diagnose involves a serious condition.
To successfully win your Medical Malpractice case, you must prove that your doctor breached the “standard of care”. Furthermore, you must evidence that your doctor’s breach of care was the “proximate cause” of your injury. Finally, you must show that you suffered significant damages as a result of the malpractice.
An experienced attorney is the key to winning your medical malpractice case. Your lawyer will perform a thorough investigation of facts and complete a detailed analysis of your medical records. If you case meets a malpractice threshold , your lawyer will secure a medical expert to establish that your physician did not act with an appropriate level of care.
Florida law allows two years from the date of a medical malpractice occurrence to file a claim. (There are rare exceptions that occasionally make it possible to extend this time). This means you have two years from the date the malpractice occurred to file your malpractice lawsuit. Otherwise, you will be forever barred from doing so. This is why it's so important to contact an attorney as soon as you suspect that your doctor committed malpractice.
If you were injured or if a loved one was killed by Medical Malpractice, you have the right to a qualified attorney who is skilled in Florida's complex malpractice law and is knowledgeable about your type of injuries.
