Medical Malpractice Claims Attorney
Medical errors are the third leading cause of death in the U.S., and a good Medical Malpractice Claim Attorney is essential for victims of medical malpractice to help them get the justice they deserve. The Florida Legislature has tried over the years to protect doctors and hospitals from what they claim are unfair results in these cases. “Tort Reform” as it is known, has severely limited one’s ability to bring a claim in Florida alleging medical malpractice on the part of a health care provider. Nonetheless, these are still viable claims under the right circumstances and with the right lawyer.
These cases are very heavily dependent upon experts to provide opinions after reviewing records. This becomes quite expensive and cost prohibitive unless the injury is serious enough. Under Florida law, you’re not even allowed to file a lawsuit until you obtain an affidavit from a medical provider indicating that they believe it is reasonably likely that malpractice was committed, and even then, you still have to convince a jury that the damages (injuries or death) resulted from malpractice and was not a foreseeable risk of a particular procedure undertaken by a doctor.
It’s important to note that not all injuries at the hands of a doctor constitute malpractice. In Florida, a medical malpractice claims attorney can help to determine whether or not malpractice occurred. It’s essential to identify whether or not the actions taken were reasonably prudent for a medical provider under the same or similar circumstances to have taken. If a reasonably prudent medical provider would have done the same thing, with the only difference being the result, there is no claim.
An experienced medical malpractice claims attorney should have a strong team in place to review the medical records and determine whether or not there is sufficient evidence to show that the doctor or medical provider involved followed the standards set by the medical community, for what is reasonably prudent to do under the circumstances.
Every case is different, and careful case evaluation by an experienced medical malpractice claims attorney is critical to help you avoid wasting time, money and strain on your emotional well-being, unless it is likely to result in a very satisfactory outcome.
