A doctor's mistake or negligence is not your fault

When you submit yourself or a loved one to the care of a doctor, it is with the expectation that he or she will provide quality care. Florida doctors, nurses, surgeons and other types of care providers have the responsibility to meet a reasonable standard of care, and when they violate that responsibility, innocent people can suffer.

If you believe that you or a loved one is the victim of medical malpractice, it would probably benefit you to gain an understanding of the legal options available to you. You may be sick, in pain and dealing with outrageous medical bills, but it is not something that you have to deal with on your own. You could have grounds to file a medical malpractice claim.

Who is at fault for medical malpractice?

Medical malpractice happens for many reasons, and one of the main sources of medical mistakes is negligence. This can lead to surgical errors, medication mistakes, infection, poor post-operative care and much more. In order to prove that you are the victim of the negligence of a medical professional and obtain financial compensation, you must be able to prove the following:

  • The doctor or care provider clearly owed you medical care that met a reasonable standard.
  • The medical professional deviated from the acceptable standard of care, and the result was your injury.
  • There is a clear connection between your injury and the actions of your care provider.
  • You have definitive proof of an injury or exacerbated medical condition.

With these elements, you may be successful in your attempt to hold the liable parties accountable and seek the compensation that you deserve. Sadly, many victims of medical malpractice do not seek help or even know if they are actually a victim. No matter the circumstances of your incident, you have the right to know all of the options available to you.

Don't let a medical mistake jeopardize your future

A mistake made by a medical professional can have repercussions that will reverberate throughout your entire life. From the additional surgeries and care you will need, you should not have to bear the financial burden of someone else's mistake or careless behavior.

Medical malpractice is serious, and you may want to take quick action as soon as you learn of a mistake or have reason to suspect that you are a victim. A beneficial place to begin is to seek a complete evaluation of your case and explanation of your options.
