Florida medical malpractice cases are often complex. If you’re pursuing compensation from a medical care provider whose negligence caused an injury or a loved one’s death, you need a Florida medical malpractice attorney on your side who understands these complexities. That’s the type of qualified and aggressive representation you’ll get when you work with Elstein Legal.
Important Information about Florida Medical Malpractice Cases
Coordinating with a medical malpractice law firm in Florida if you believe you have a case is important for several reasons. While Florida law does allow victims to pursue compensation when a health care provider’s negligence causes harm, that doesn’t mean that every time someone is harmed as a result of medical care, they have a valid Florida medical malpractice case.
It’s not uncommon for medical treatment to involve some degree of risk that a patient must accept. Medical malpractice occurs when the degree of risk a patient faced was greater than they should have accepted.
To seek compensation in a Florida medical malpractice case, you need to prove that a health care provider had a duty to provide you care that met a certain standard, that they breached that duty through negligence, that you were harmed as a result, and that you sustained compensable losses.
Why Should I Hire an Attorney?
A personal injury law firm in Florida will have the resources needed to help you prove your case meets the necessary criteria. They’ll also conduct an investigation to accurately determine who the liable party is.
For example, maybe a doctor prescribed a medication that caused unexpected illness or injury. You might initially think the doctor is liable. However, maybe the doctor didn’t know about the risks you faced when taking this medication because the pharmaceutical company didn’t inform them of said risks. If so, your Florida personal injury lawyer may determine that the pharmaceutical company is actually the liable party.
That’s far from the only way coordinating with a medical malpractice law firm in Florida helps. An attorney can also review your case thoroughly to determine precisely how much compensation you’re entitled to. Although each case is different, in a Florida medical malpractice case, losses for which you may be entitled to compensation include (but are not limited to) medical bills, lost wages, and even non-financial losses, such as pain and suffering.
It’s worth noting that medical errors account for 10 percent of all annual deaths in the United States. Medical professionals who put patients in harm’s way need to be held accountable. Personal injury attorneys make sure they are, protecting future patients from harm.
