Understanding Medical Malpractice & Your Rights
Health care providers are obligated to treat patients according to a certain standard of care. When they fail to do so, as a result of negligence or some wrongful act, patients face increased risks of suffering harm. In the event a patient does suffer harm due to a medical professional’s negligence, the at-fault health care provider can be held responsible for any damages that result. As an injured victim of medical malpractice, you have the right to bring legal action against the party that harmed you, whether it be a doctor, nurse, or other type of health care provider.
These lawsuits, or medical malpractice claims, can allow you to recover damages such as:
- Pain and suffering
- Additional medical expenses
- Lost work wages & reduced earning capacity
- Mental and emotional injuries
- Physical impairment or disfigurement
- Loss of qualify of life / companionship
- Death benefits in the event of wrongful death
Medical malpractice claims are complex because they involve highly technical medical and legal facts. Because health care providers are also heavily insured, these claims can be contested aggressively by companies that put profits over people, and want only to deny or minimize your compensation. As such, working with a skilled medical malpractice lawyer in Florida can make all the difference in your case.
