Medical Malpractice Lawyer
in St. Pete & Pinellas Park, FL

Injured by a medical provider

After you or someone you love have been injured due to the negligence or malpractice of a medical provider, you will need an experienced litigator by your side to manage the process of seeking recovery.

Medical malpractice in Florida refers to the professional negligence of doctors, surgeons, specialists, nurse practitioners, nurses, pharmacists, and other healthcare providers whose actions result in serious injury to the patient. This include medical errors, missed or wrong diagnoses, surgical mistakes, and other acts or omissions which cause a patient to become more injured or ill rather than healthier. It is premised on the claim that the medical provider breached the standard of care which is considered reasonable, acceptable, and appropriate among similar providers and that breach resulted in the patients injury.

Common examples include:

  • Patient neglect
  • Anesthesia errors
  • Poor sanitation of instruments and equipment
  • Misdiagnosis of conditions
  • Negligently performed surgical procedures
  • Postoperative negligence
  • Surgeries performed without consent
  • Premature discharge from a hospital

An injured patient must file their claim or lawsuit within two years of the time they knew or should have known the injury occurred and that it was likely due to medical malpractice, and within four years of the malpractice actually occurring. Though some exceptions exist, in most cases this is the required time frame.

Several forms of damages are available in a claim against the healthcare provider, these include: medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, mental anguish, emotional distress, loss of spousal support, and costs of future corrective surgeries

After you seek legal representation, your attorney will begin researching and gathering evidence to support your claim. Medical malpractice cases can take time depending on the nature and extent of injuries, finding experts, the insurance company’s willingness to negotiate, and court availability. In some cases, the insurer will provide a satisfactory settlement offer while in others it may be necessary to present your case to a jury.
