Medical Malpractice

For many people who have been seriously hurt because of medical negligence or seen a loved one suffer, the essence of a medical malpractice case is that their trust has been violated. The problem is that they trusted (and paid handsomely for) a doctor or hospital to uphold appropriate standards of care, and it didn't happen.

Unfortunately, medical malpractice cases are difficult and expensive to bring forward because:

  • They rely on the testimony of doctors who must be willing to call their colleagues negligent.
  • There may be limited benefit and maximum risk for the patient.
  • These cases are technically intensive and allow for no margin of error.
  • There is a short (two-year) statute of limitations in Florida.
  • Physicians are protected by the presuit screening process. Plaintiffs are required to advise them in advance that they intend to sue — and give them the right to investigate the case.
  • Caps on economic losses, which are considered unconstitutional in Florida, may be abolished.

Despite these drawbacks, some medical malpractice claims are appropriate. An experienced attorney can help you understand whether you have a case.
