How Long You Have to File a Medical Malpractice Claim Against Mercy Hospital in Miami

In Florida, the statute of limitations for filing a medical malpractice lawsuit is two years from the date when the negligence that caused injury or death occurred. There may also be a four year statute of repose in certain, limited situations. Your medical malpractice attorney can tell you if these apply to you.

Some details you should know regarding the timeline for medical malpractice claims against Mercy Hospital in Miami include:

  • The two-year clock starts running on the date the negligent act at Mercy Hospital happened, not when it was discovered later.
  • The statute of repose dictates no malpractice claims can proceed after 4 years from the date of negligence, with some exceptions.
  • Certain disabilities can extend the statute of limitations, if proved.
  • Your right to get compensation from Mercy Hospital may expire if you miss the deadline.

Florida’s medical malpractice timeline can be complex, and combined with Mercy’s likely legal defenses, this makes getting a consultation with an attorney sooner rather than later important.  We can evaluate your prospective claim against Mercy and ensure your right to pursue fair compensation is protected.

Mercy Hospital Medical Malpractice Lawyer FAQs

Can you sue a doctor from Mercy Hospital if they do not have malpractice insurance?

You can file a malpractice claim against any doctor or negligent party at Mercy Hospital, once you have established that you have a valid medical malpractice claim. But if the doctor doesn’t have Florida malpractice insurance, should you?

Without insurance coverage, any physician or surgeon you filed a claim against would need to pay any resulting settlement or court award using their own assets, which may not be enough to cover your damages. A Miami medical malpractice lawyer can help you determine if it’s worth filing a claim.

How hard is it to prove medical malpractice against a Florida hospital?

To prove medical malpractice in a lawsuit in Florida, we will need to show that the doctor breached the standard of care, that this breach of the standard caused your injuries or worsened an existing condition, and that this resulted in monetary losses.

Because these cases can be tough to prove, you may need to bring in expert medical witnesses who can testify that the doctor did not act or react in a way that would be typical of most professionals in the same situation.

What settlement can I get for a medical malpractice lawsuit in Florida?

Medical malpractice settlements vary based on location, but the amount of any potential payout in your claim could be much higher or much lower. It all depends on the specific circumstances of your injury and the strength of your evidence.

If you are wondering how much your claim is worth, the best way to find out is to get a consultation with a malpractice lawyer who understands Florida’s laws. We can give you an estimate of your claim that is based on the details of your case.

Filing a Wrongful Death Claim Against Mercy Hospital in Miami

A patient who is injured at Miami’s Mercy Hospital due to hospital malpractice can file a lawsuit for medical malpractice in Florida. When the injured patient is a minor, their parents can file a claim. But what about when the patient has passed away from the act of medical negligence? Who can file a claim in this situation?

According to §768.16, which is known as Florida’s Wrongful Death Act, when a patient has died as a result of medical negligence, a medical malpractice claim can be filed by:

  • Children aged 25 or younger
  • Adult children who were financially dependent on the deceased
  • The spouse of the deceased
  • Parents of the deceased, if the deceased was 25 or younger

What is the difference between medical malpractice and wrongful death?

The main differences between medical malpractice and wrongful death claims include:

  • Medical malpractice: Involves negligent treatment, errors or omissions by a healthcare provider that causes injury or illness but not death. The victim pursues compensation for their harms.
  • Wrongful death: Filed when negligent, reckless or intentional actions cause someone’s death. Surviving loved ones pursue compensation under wrongful death statutes.
  • Claimants: The injured victim pursues malpractice claims. The deceased victim’s estate/family members pursue wrongful death claims.
  • Damages: Malpractice covers the victim’s medical costs, lost income, disabilities, pain and suffering. Wrongful death covers funeral costs, loss of income and benefits, loss of companionship.
  • Standard of care: Malpractice involves deviations from the professional standard of care expected of reasonable healthcare providers. Wrongful death involves violations of the duty any member of society owes others.
  • Statutes: Malpractice negligence claims follow personal injury statutes of limitations. Wrongful death follows its own statutes and rules on who can file, damages, time limits, etc.

While malpractice and wrongful death lawsuits share similarities, critical differences exist in terms of claimants, damages, and other legal nuances.

We Know Mercy Hospital’s History of Medical Malpractice

Mercy Hospital may not have a Consumer Report rating, but it certainly has a history of medical malpractice.

In a case that yielded what was once the largest verdict for medical malpractice in Florida, a jury awarded $7.2 million to the family of a 22-year-old man who was left brain dead after a routine operation for a broken leg. The hospital and anesthesiologist failed to properly monitor their patient during his surgery, leading to tragic, irreversible damage.

In another multimillion-dollar case, a family’s infant girl suffered a permanent brain injury during childbirth. The mother, who was under the care of Mercy Hospital’s labor and delivery nurses, was administered Pitocin, which is commonly used to induce labor. However, when progress stalled the next morning, caregivers administered more of the drug, causing hyperstimulation.

Ultimately, the baby had to be delivered via a cesarean section. The infant was not breathing after the delivery and needed to be revived. She was diagnosed with cerebral palsy and developmental delay, necessitating care for the rest of her life. These are just two examples of terrible negligence by Mercy Hospital.

Our firm understands the high standards that medical providers must honor, and we’ll determine every way that Mercy Hospital may have failed you or your loved one.
