Do I Have a Medical Malpractice Claim in Florida?
Preventable cases of medical negligence may victimize as many as 250,000 people in America every year and claim the lives of nearly 100,000 people. Too often, medical malpractice goes unreported. In Florida, for instance, a high number of injuries and deaths may be deemed to be age-related when they could have been prevented.
Medical malpractice occurs when a patient is harmed by a negligent act or failure to act by a doctor or other medical professional. Negligence may include errors in the diagnosis, treatment or management of an illness.
A “medical professional” may include doctors, nurses, surgeons, anesthesiologists, physician’s assistants, chiropractors, dentists, pharmacists and others. A hospital, the hospital staff or another medical care provider may also be a defendant in a case.
If you suspect that you or a loved one has been harmed by a negligent medical professional, it is important to seek legal help right away. Medical malpractice cases are demanding and require thorough investigation by an experienced legal team.
Any medical procedure can fail. An undesired outcome is not necessarily malpractice. On the other hand, if you think that malpractice may have contributed to the outcome, you owe it to yourself to find out the truth. Philip DeBerard, Injury Attorney, can thoroughly investigate and analyze your case to get the answers you deserve.
