An Overview of Medical Malpractice
When you seek medical treatment from a doctor or hospital, you have every right to expect that you will receive high-quality and attentive care. Sadly, in far too many cases, medical professionals and healthcare providers fail to live up to their most basic duties under the law. When a patient receives substandard care and they suffer physical harm as a result, they have the legal right to hold the responsible doctor or hospital liable through a medical malpractice claim. Medical malpractice comes in many different forms. Some of the most common examples of medical malpractice in South Florida include:
- Failure to diagnose;
- Doctor misdiagnosis;
- Surgical errors;
- Anesthesiologist errors;
- Emergency room errors;
- Prescription drug injuries;
- Birth injuries; and
- Other harmful medical mistakes.
To be clear, Florida law does not expect perfection from doctors, nurses, and other medical professionals. A patient cannot hold a medical provider liable simply because they did not get better. To prevail in a medical malpractice lawsuit in Florida, a patient must prove that they received worse care than the ordinary medical professional would have provided under similar circumstances.
Medical malpractice claims are complex, highly fact-specific cases. Each medical malpractice claim requires a comprehensive investigation by an experienced professional. Our Boca Raton, FL medical malpractice lawyers are prepared to investigate your claim and help you put together the evidence needed to prove liability.
