What is medical malpractice? Medical Malpractice is the occurrence of negligence during the diagnoses, treatment or care of a patient from a doctor, nurse or other medical professional. If you have been injured while under the care of a medical professional, you can file a medical malpractice lawsuit.
If you have experienced:
- Surgical errors
- Prescribing the wrong course of treatment
- Delaying the diagnoses
- Failing to order diagnostic tests
- Errors in the administration of anesthesia or medication
You may be entitled to compensation. In the state of Florida, you have two years to file a claim against your doctor for medical malpractice. Once your claim has been filed, a 90-day investigation period will need to be filed through the court. Another medical professional will be required to review your case and vouch that you have not been provided the appropriate level of care. Once you have received this certificate of merit, you must notify your doctor 90 days prior to filing the claim that you have the intent to sue.
