Tampa Medical Malpractice Lawyer

Tampa has some extraordinary medical facilities and healthcare workers. However, even the world’s best make mistakes, regardless of what field they practice. Unfortunately, when that field happens to be the healthcare industry, and lives are on the line, mistakes can end up in serious injury and even death. Millions of people suffer serious health consequences due to mistakes made by physicians, and hundreds of thousands die prematurely. In fact, the Journal of Patient Safety found that 440,000 Americans die every year from these mistakes, which would be the third leading cause of death after cardiac arrest. Additionally, the Journal of Health Care Finance calculates that these mistakes take a $1 trillion financial toll on the economy each year. However, medical mistakes that end in death are not always completely cut and dry. Without medical care, of course, millions of Americans would die every year from what we now consider to be minor injuries and illnesses. And, no doctor can save every patient that comes into the emergency room. So where is the line drawn? What is an acceptable level of error to make? Should every patient that believes they ended up with a longer illness, worse injury, or prolonged complication file a medical malpractice lawsuit? That depends on whether or not the standard of care was violated.

Standard of care refers to the type and quality of treatment that a patient receives in their given location. This means that a 57-year-old accountant in Tampa should be given the same treatment for high cholesterol that a 57-year-old accountant receives in Clearwater, Brandon, or St. Petersburg. If the treatment was not the same and it caused an injury or illness, then that patient may have grounds for filing a lawsuit due to a violation of the standard of care. If you have been injured due to a doctor’s mistake, contact an experienced Tampa medical malpractice lawyer today.

Tampa Medical Malpractice is Common in the Healthcare Field

It is not uncommon for a physician to face multiple medical malpractice claims throughout their career. Mistakes are a symptom of this often underfunded institution (healthcare), which leads to overcrowding. Furthermore, all humans make mistakes, as stated above. That does not mean that you do not have the right to seek financial compensation to help you through your prolonged recovery. Financial compensation can help cover your medical expenses, pain and suffering, and lost wages.
