YOUR HEALTH & MEDICAL MALPRACTICE
A System Built on Trust –
There is nothing more important than your health and well-being. When you seek medical attention for yourself or a loved one, you place your most sacred trust in the hands of healthcare professionals who have committed to certain oaths and high professional standards.
You Deserve Professional Care –
There are many contributors to the quality of your healthcare experience. Whether it is a physician, nurse, hospital, clinic, physician’s assistant, pharmacist or other provider of healthcare services, you can and should expect them to do their job properly and within the high standards required of them.
When Trust is Broken –
When providers make mistakes or fail to do the right thing, the results can be tragic. In those instances, stress and emotions can run high, and immediate needs often become the top priority. The unfortunate result is that many deserving victims fail to consider their rights and the legal responsibility or liability that healthcare providers may have for the devastating outcome.
How to Identify Medical Malpractice –
If you believe a healthcare provider has caused harm to a patient by not doing their job in a reasonably prudent manner, you may have experienced a case of medical malpractice.
A few questions to ask yourself:
- Did the provider fail to make the proper diagnosis?
- Was the operation or procedure performed improperly?
- Was the patient given the wrong type of care?
- Was the procedure unnecessary?
- Did the patient receive inadequate advice about risks?
- Was the procedure performed on the wrong arm, leg or body part?
- Was the wrong medication or dose prescribed or administered?
- Did the provider fail to transfer the patient to an appropriate institution or fail to contact the appropriate specialist?
- Did the provider fail to provide timely care?
- Did providers fail to follow the rule of “first, do no harm?”
If you answered “Yes” to one or more of these questions, you may have experienced a case of medical malpractice.
Know Your Rights: Florida Laws are Different –
Medical malpractice cases typically involve a high degree of complexity, and in particular, the State of Florida has very specific laws impacting who can sue, what pre-suit procedures are required/allowable, and limitations on both the timing of law suits and the amount of recovery. Any lawyer you retain needs to understand these intricate nuances.
