Compensation for Medical Malpractice> Boca Raton Medical Malpractice Laws: What You Need to Know> Determining Liability> Why Choose Elstein Legal?>

Have you or a loved one in the Boca Raton area been harmed due to the negligence of a doctor or other medical professional? While we expect healthcare providers to keep us safe and well, they may fail to do so. When this happens, you deserve to be compensated accordingly.

Compensation for Medical Malpractice

Medical malpractice cases can be particularly complex. Securing any compensation you may be owed will likely be challenging if you do not have legal representation. You may have medical bills and require long-term care, or lost wages since you are unable to return to work until you heal.

Review your case with a Boca Raton medical malpractice attorney to learn more. An attorney can help determine the amount of compensation you are likely entitled to, while bettering your chances of recovering it.

Boca Raton Medical Malpractice Laws: What You Need to Know

Healthcare providers play a critical role in society. As such, the Florida laws pertaining to medical malpractice cases are designed to ensure victims are compensated only when a medical professional was truly negligent. If you believe you have a case, you must prove “by the greater weight of evidence that the alleged actions of the health care provider represented a breach of the prevailing professional standard of care for that health care provider. The prevailing professional standard of care for a given health care provider shall be that level of care, skill, and treatment which, in light of all relevant surrounding circumstances, is recognized as acceptable and appropriate by reasonably prudent similar health care providers.”

This is one of the many reasons to enlist the help of a personal injury law firm near Boca Raton. A medical malpractice lawyer can help you gather evidence showing your case meets the necessary criteria.

Common examples of medical malpractice include (but are not limited to):

  • Failure to diagnose an illness;
  • Prescribing harmful and/or unnecessary medication;
  • Performing unnecessary surgery;
  • Performing surgery on the wrong patient;
  • Leaving items inside a patient after surgery.

Determining Liability

Gathering evidence is just one way a Boca Raton medical malpractice lawyer can help you seek the compensation you may deserve. We can also help determine who the liable party responsible for compensating you actually is.

Determining liability can be tricky. For instance, if a doctor prescribed a medication that caused harm, that does not always mean the doctor is liable. It may be that the pharmaceutical company is because they failed to inform the doctor of a risk associated with the drug.
