Damages You May Be Able to Recover
Medical providers who fail to follow the healthcare profession’s strict safety practices and uphold the expected standard of care should pay for the harm they cause to patients. However, you can expect the negligent party and their insurer to enlist the help of a high-powered defense firm to protect their best interests and bottom line.
Allow Freidin Brown, P.A. to take your case, investigate your claims, and determine how much compensation you and your family deserve for injuries or illnesses caused by medical malpractice. Our firm has stood up for the injured for more than 45 years. As a result, we can put our trial experience behind securing compensation for you.
Some types of damages you may be able to recover include the following:
- Medical expenses (both past and future), including reimbursement for negligent care and awards to pay for treatment resulting from your malpractice injury
- Lost work income, including wages, salary, benefits, and retirement contributions
- Reduced earning capacity if your injuries affect your ability to earn a living
- Physical pain and suffering
- Emotional suffering and mental anguish
- Lost quality of life or companionship
- Death benefits in the event of wrongful death
How Long Do You Have to Seek Medical Malpractice Compensation in Florida?
Florida has precise timelines for pursuing medical malpractice compensation. According to Florida Statutes § 766.106, you must serve the negligent provider with a notice of your intent to sue before filing suit. This notice starts a negotiation process lasting 90 days. If you cannot agree with the provider’s insurer, you have 60 days or the remainder of the statute of limitations (whichever is longer) to file a medical malpractice lawsuit.
Florida’s statute of limitations for malpractice generally gives victims two years from the date of injury to file, according to Florida Statutes § 95.11(4)(b). However, this deadline has many wrinkles that our attorneys can explain and interpret. Thus, we’ll determine how the law applies to your case and protect your right to compensation by ensuring you meet all deadlines. Then, we’ll also help you collect evidence before it degrades or gets lost and speak with witnesses before their memories fade.
