Medical Malpractice in Florida

Medical malpractice takes many forms. It could involve death or a diminished quality of life due to negligence on the part of a doctor or other medical professional.

Medical malpractice cases can be lengthy and complex. The validity of a claim rests on whether or not a prevailing professional standard of care was exercised by the doctor or other medical professional. To further complicate things, there are statutes of limitations and the age of the involved party to consider. Insurance companies may also become involved in the case and have an interest in any monetary reward you receive. These parties will all be well-represented legally, making your legal representation a key factor.

Florida law does not take medical malpractice cases lightly and neither should you. Before filing a lawsuit, the courts require lawyers to do substantial research and show cause for filing. Some things it might be advisable to keep careful track of include:

  • Ÿ  medical records
  • Ÿ  medical bills
  • Ÿ  medical procedures
  • Ÿ  insurance paperwork
  • Ÿ  the names of the medical professionals involved
  • Ÿ  medications involved
  • Ÿ  witnesses to the event or resulting injury
