Does a bad outcome from a doctor mean that medical malpractice has occurred?
No, a bad outcome does not necessarily mean you’ve been the victim of medical negligence. Medical negligence has a definition in the state of Florida. It is the failure to meet the standard of care. The standard of care is what a similarly trained, prudent professional practicing in the same area would have done under similar circumstances. Only then will you have a negligence in a potential medical malpractice case. If you’ve been injured by what you think is medical malpractice, it can be extremely difficult to figure that out. That’s why we encourage you to come consult with us, and we will help you to identify whether you’ve been the victim of medical negligence.
