Medical Malpractice

Medical <strong>Malpractice</strong>

Medical negligence is the third leading cause of death in the U.S. according to a study by Johns Hopkins. What is rarely addressed is that most claims never get reported or even investigated. It is common to have questions about whether to sue a physician, nurse or hospital following an adverse outcome, largely because patients do not expect to be harmed while under the care of a healthcare provider. Unfortunately, injuries and even death occur at the hands of the most experienced practitioners or in the most reputable facilities.

Under the law in the state of Florida, wrongful death is looked at differently in cases of medical malpractice versus a wrongful death caused by other types of personal injury. Florida law restricts who may bring a claim for the death of a family member and gives you a limited time to file.
