There are strict laws in the State of Florida that limit how long a person can wait before filing a medical malpractice lawsuit. If a lawsuit is not filed prior to the expiration of the statute of limitations period, then your right to sue may be forever lost.
Therefore, it is very important that you take action immediately so the statute of limitations period does not expire.
Medical Malpractice Lawsuits
When a person is injured by a negligent medical professional or facility, Florida medical malpractice law allows them the opportunity to recover compensation to become “whole” again. In other words, injured patients can sue the negligent party to obtain medical malpractice damages for monetary losses including medical expenses, future medical expenses, and lost wages and marital benefits.
Emotional and mental anguishes such as pain and suffering and loss of life’s enjoyment can also be causes for compensation in a medical malpractice lawsuit.
Costly medical bills can cause financial devastation to patients and their families following medical malpractice, especially if they unable to earn a living as a result of their injuries or health status.
