FLORIDA MEDICAL MALPRACTICE ATTORNEY

 

What is Medical Malpractice law?

Medical malpractice is generally professional negligence by an act or omission by a health care or medical provider in which the care provided deviates from the normal standard of care in the community and causes injury or death to the patient.


How long do I have to bring a medical malpractice claim?

Each state has different rules and limitations depending on the facts of each case. This is one main reason it is important to speak with an attorney as soon as possible. For example, in Florida and New York, you generally have 2 years to file a lawsuit against a medical doctor or hospital for medical malpractice. There are also other limitations which may apply.

What types of medical malpractice claims can you handle?

Examples of medical malpractice cases we can handle include those involving birth injuries, failure to timely diagnose an injury, cancer or other disease, misdiagnosis, delayed diagnosis, x-ray read errors, giving the wrong drug, failing to give a drug properly, retained surgical instruments (leaving instruments inside a patient), and performing surgery on the wrong body part or patient.


Where can you handle medical malpractice claims?

We can handle medical malpractice claims throughout Florida, New York and Washington, DC.


How do I pay for a medical malpractice case?

We generally handle medical malpractice cases on a contingency fee. This means you would not pay us any money out of pocket. We only get paid if your case is settled or won at trial. If the medical malpractice case is handled on a contingency fee, we waive all fees and costs if there is no recovery.


What types of damages can I recover in a medical malpractice case?

Each state allows you to recover different damages. In general, you may be entitled to recover money for pain and suffering, medical expenses, lost wages, loss of earning capacity, out of pocket expenses, mileage for travel to and from the doctor, damage to your property, and sometimes even punitive damages. Medical malpractice which results in death may entitle you to other damages, like loss of support and services, and emotional pain and suffering.
