Florida Medical Malpractice Attorneys
Some diseases may be rare – but medical mistakes are not. Medical malpractice occurs when a health care provider or a hospital fails to act with a reasonable standard of care, causing a new or aggravated injury to the patient. These mistakes can cause birth trauma, brain injury, paralysis, amputation, disability, and disfigurement. The injuries are often permanent – and, in some cases, result in death. For those harmed by a medical mistake – and their families – the physical, financial, and emotional costs can be staggering, too. They can also be an extreme hardship. Medical malpractice, unfortunately, takes many forms. Some examples include:
- Failure or delay in diagnosing a medical condition (or misdiagnosing it)
- Surgical- or anesthesia-related mishap during an operation
- Failure to disclose to the patient the risks associated with a procedure – so that ‘informed consent’ is never obtained
- Failure to manage a pregnancy or deliver a baby in a safe manner
- Failure to properly treat a medical condition after making a correct diagnosis
- Failure to administer medications properly
Through the legal system, victims of medical malpractice and their families can seek redress for their injuries – and accountability for mistakes that, in many cases, have changed their life. But medical malpractice litigation is a complicated, challenging area of the law. Plaintiffs who don’t carefully select their counsel will find that their lawyers can make mistakes as easily as their doctors. That’s why it’s essential to choose a firm that isn’t just knowledgeable in medical malpractice law, but has a reputation for experience and a record of success.
