Fort Lauderdale Medical Malpractice Lawyer

Medical negligence leads to a significant number of injuries and illnesses each and every year. In fact, according to a recent study published by the Journal of Patient Safety, errors made in hospitals cause between 210,000 and 440,000 premature fatalities each year. This could mean that in the U.S., medical malpractice is the third leading cause of death.

Modern medicine has made incredible progress over the past few decades, and continues to make astounding advancements with each passing year. However, mistakes still happen. And, when mistakes are made due to carelessness or recklessness, and those mistakes end in your illness or injury, or death of a loved one, you should consider filing suit for medical malpractice. But it’s important to act quickly, as you only have up to two years to file suit in Florida against the negligent party. Contact our experienced Fort Lauderdale medical malpractice lawyers for help with your case.

Standard of Care

To prove negligence, a doctor, nurse, technician, or caretaker must have either made a mistake or not taken action when they should have, known as an omission, that lead to a patient’s injury, illness, or death. The doctor must have used the same standard of care that other healthcare professionals use. Standard of care ultimately means that all doctors are expected to treat similar patients in a similar region of the country, in a similar fashion. For example, the treatment of all 45-year-old patients with emphysema in Fort Lauderdale should be upheld to a similar standard. For a medical malpractice lawsuit to have any real substance, you must prove that your medical provider violated this standard of care.

When Mistakes Are Made

If a mechanic misdiagnoses the problem with your car’s engine, it may not be more than a simple inconvenience. When you put your life in the hands of others, however, the care you receive has to be second to none. You have the right to the highest standard of professional, respectful care. If the trust you put in your doctor is betrayed, not only is your health jeopardized, you are forced into a state of helplessness.

While we all must recognize the fact that our health will eventually fade and our death is imminent, if you believe that a healthcare provider did not treat you with the same standard of care that they should have, you may have grounds for a lawsuit. Let our aggressive Fort Lauderdale medical malpractice lawyers help.
