Although doctors take an oath to do no harm, a negligent healthcare provider may cause distress to patients. Their victims may be able to recover compensation for such losses as their medical bills when this happens. If a healthcare provider’s carelessness resulted in the wrongful death of a patient, their survivors may also seek compensation.

Understanding Pompano Beach Medical Malpractice Laws and Cases
Medical malpractice is more common than one may realize. Statistics indicate every year thousands of Americans seek compensation by filing medical malpractice claims.
Under Florida law, to show they have a right to seek compensation for losses resulting from medical malpractice, a claimant “shall have the burden of proving 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.”
This is one reason to enlist the help of a Pompano Beach medical malpractice lawyer if you believe you have a valid case. Without legal background and relevant experience in these matters, you will likely struggle to show your case meets the criteria the law establishes. You can benefit from representation from an attorney who understands what does and does not constitute medical malpractice.
Elstein Legal can also help by calculating how much compensation you may deserve based on the nature of your losses (some of which may be non-financial) and negotiating with insurers for a fair payout.
