Malpractice can be difficult to prove in court. In order to prevail, we need to show that the healthcare provider failed to meet a reasonable standard of care and that this directly caused your injuries and damages. We consult with the best medical professionals, nurses, and physician experts to enable us to convincingly prove your case.

Medical malpractice (negligence) occurs when physicians, healthcare providers, or hospital personnel make a medical error or mistake that falls below a reasonable standard of care, and when their negligence causes Permanent disability, Serious injury or Death. There are clear standards set out for doctors and healthcare providers to ensure patients are cared for.

Mistakes do happen in medicine, and usually a simple mistake does not constitute negligence. However, if a doctor or healthcare provider does not meet the minimum standard of care (medication dosage errors, surgical errors, improper care or nursing care, for example) then you may have a medical negligence case.

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.

When physical and emotional pain are added to the financial stress, there is often a deep sense of overwhelm in the family. There is only one way to receive funds to cover mounting expenses and to compensate for pain and suffering: filing a medical malpractice lawsuit.
