Florida Medical Malpractice Lawyer Serving Injured Patients in Daytona Beach 

Medical malpractice, which is also known as medical negligence, can result in severe and life-threatening injuries to patients. When patients visit a healthcare provider and seek a diagnosis or medical treatment, those patients should be able to expect that they will receive quality care. However, healthcare providers can be careless and can fail to provide the standard of care that patients should be able to anticipate. Under Florida law (Fla. Stat. § 766.102), patients who are injured as a result of medical negligence may be able to file a claim for compensation.

If you or someone you love suffered injuries because of a healthcare provider’s negligence, you should get in touch with a Daytona Beach medical malpractice lawyer as soon as possible.

Learning More About Medical Malpractice in Daytona Beach

Medical malpractice claims in Florida allow an injured patient to seek damages after suffering an injury caused by the negligence of a healthcare provider. The general elements of a medical malpractice lawsuit are as follows:

  • Healthcare provider owed the patient a duty of care (which is usually established as soon as a patient visits a healthcare provider seeking treatment or care);
  • Healthcare provider breached that duty of care (which the plaintiff must prove by showing that the healthcare provider failed to live up to the standards that another healthcare provider in the same field and geographic area would consider proper);
  • Patient suffered an injury; and
  • Patient’s injury resulted from the healthcare provider’s breach of the duty of care.
