Medical Malpractice actions are a specialized form of negligence where an individual is harmed by the malpractice of a physician or the staff of a hospital OR both ! There are some important distinctions that you as a Floridian need to know!
WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW!
· Generally, with some limited exceptions, Medical Malpractice actions must be filed within two years of the act that injured you;
· You are required to fulfill certain obligations prior to filing a lawsuit to allow you to bring a claim;
· You need to know if your doctor carried insurance. Most people don’t know that most doctors do not, and are not obligated to, carry malpractice
· The Florida legislature has placed certain caps or limits on how much a person can recover for their pain and suffering as a result of a physician’s
If a physician injures YOU and fails to practice the “level of care, or skill, or treatment which in light of all relevant surrounding circumstances, is recognized as acceptable by reasonably prudent similar health care providers” you may have a cause of action against a doctor who injures YOU!
Remember this standard is met by another physician testifying against the person who injured YOU, an expert on your behalf. You need a law firm that can both acquire these experts and has the resources, knowledge, and experience to handle these matters on your behalf.
