Medical Malpractice Lawyers
Injured? The Florida Law Group can Help You Seek Compensation.
Patients trust that the medical professionals who provide them with care will act safely, thoughtfully, and without error. Unfortunately, no doctor, nurse, dentist or other licensed health care provider is perfect and accidents happen that cause expenses, physical suffering, and in some cases, permanent disability or loss of life. If you or someone you care about has been injured, or your family has lost a loved one to what you believe is wrongful death, it is vitally important that you learn what legal recourse is available to you and what your rights are with regard to seeking compensation for your loss in financial terms. We at The Florida Law Group can help you during this stressful time.
We are well-versed with the laws and procedures that pertain to a vast range of medical negligence cases, such as the following:
- Emergency room errors
- Pharmacy negligence
- Hospital medication mistakes
- Surgical malpractice
- Medical equipment failure
How to Prove Medical Negligence
When a medical professional either acts negligently or fails to provide adequate care for a patient, this is considered medical negligence and a form of malpractice on their part. Every year, countless individuals in our state are injured and lose their lives due to medical malpractice and negligence. The National Institute of Health estimates that 225,000 people are killed by medical malpractice every year, and 12,000 people die each year from unnecessary surgeries.
In order to be successful in your medical malpractice claim, you must be able to prove the following factors:
- The medical professional had a legal duty to exercise due care
- The medical professional failed to exercise due care
- You were hurt as a result of their failure to exercise due care
With the help of an experienced legal professional who has handled many negligence cases, you can gather the necessary information to prove your claim and secure the compensation you need and deserve. Our firm has been very successful with personal injury cases during our more than 100 years of combined experience.
