Navigating medical malpractice lawsuits

Updated: Jul 27, 2020

If you or a loved one is seriously harmed by the negligence or carelessness of a doctor, nurse, or other medical professional in Florida, it is important to speak to an experienced Florida medical malpractice lawyer. Medical malpractice” means the failure to practice medicine in accordance with the level of care, skill, and treatment recognized in general law related to health care licensure.

Hospitals have a duty to ensure the safety and adequate care of admitted patients. This means they must thoroughly evaluate prospective employees including their prior experience in a hospital environment, any relevant certifications and most advanced level of education.

If you or a loved one is looking to file a malpractice claim based upon a misdiagnosis, or delayed diagnosis, you have the burden of proving that the healthcare professional was negligent.

A full understanding of statute of limitations issues is essential to both case selection and analysis and the formal prosecution of each meritorious medical negligence claim. Florida’s malpractice law concerning statutes of limitation requires an injured party to initiate a medical negligence case within two years from the date of the incident or within two years after an injury caused by medical negligence could have “reasonably” been discovered.
