Medical Malpractice Victims Need Quality Representation

In addition to the basic universal guidelines that govern whether a decision by a medical professional is considered wrongful, medical malpractice laws differ depending upon location. Do you want to know if your case may qualify for legal action in Margate? Read below to learn how to better understand what considerations make poorly implemented medical treatments illegal; then call our team of legal experts at (800) 787-6445 to schedule a meeting to further discuss your case.

Is Every Error in Treatment Grounds for Malpractice?

Doctors and other health care providers unfortunately cause harm to patients on a regular basis. But is it always malpractice? Malpractice occurs when a medical professional deviates from the "agreed upon standard of care" for the patient's condition. After heart disease and cancer, medical malpractice may be considered the third leading cause of death. Yet not every error of judgment is considered grounds for legal action and potential resulting compensation.

If you believe you have received treatment that may merit a claim, the only way to know for certain is to contact a qualified legal professional who specializes in personal injury law, including hospital and medical injury cases. Michael C. George, P. A. has the knowledge and experience to represent complex cases and has taken on some of the largest insurance companies nationwide.

 

What are the Most Common Causes of Medical Malpractice Injuries?

  • Misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis that results in complications and sometimes death. This is one of the most prevalent claims against doctors and hospitals.
  • Childbirth injuries due to negligent prenatal care and education or actual negligence by the doctor during delivery. These can have lifelong effects for the infant.
  • Prescribing improper medication or incorrectly administering dosage can trigger serious or even fatal consequences. These are quite common reasons people suffer injuries related to medical care. 
  • Surgical injuries. Every surgery presents a degree of risk. Not all unsuccessful outcomes can be avoided. Anesthesia or surgical errors that end up causing amputation, permanent medical complications or death often deserve legal inquiry.
  • Death resulting from refused treatment due to lack of insurance.
  • Tools or materials left inside a patient after a surgery is completed.
  • Bed sores, abuse, or dehydration in nursing home patients.
  • Surgeons operating on the wrong body part due to misunderstanding of the patient's condition.

Who Can be Charged with Malpractice in Margate?

Not only doctors, but anyone in the scope of medical practice can be held responsible for their improper actions. This includes nurses, nurse's aides, anesthesiologists, therapists, any employee of a health care facility involved with patient care, or the facility itself; pharmaceutical companies and others that provide various levels of supportive health care services.

Do Florida Medical Malpractice Laws Include a Statute of Limitations?

A charge of medical malpractice is only valid up to two years from the time the victim knew or should have known that malpractice occurred. This is much shorter than the time allowed for other types of negligence, so it is essential to act without delay. It is also important to consult promptly with a personal injury attorney who understands the necessity of assessing your case, settling it out of court to avoid excess cost if at all feasible, or pressing charges before too much time passes.

How Difficult is it to Present a Case?

The burden of proof is on the claimant, and several actions are necessary to present a claim that may be seen as definitive proof the defendant "represented a breach of the prevailing professional standard for that health care provider". Based on the law, an expert medical witness must be hired to testify and assert that the medical professional's actions "fell below the applicable standard of care, in order to win a medical malpractice case in the state of Florida. Florida Statutes Chapter 766 covers the subject of Florida laws regarding malpractice cases.

Can I Present the Case Myself?

You can, in theory, present your own case. But chances of winning against the medical community's almost limitless litigation resources and strong defense strategies makes doing so inadvisable. A good personal injury lawyer knows how to navigate insurance traps and pitfalls. An attorney can advise you of your legal rights and responsibilities; protect your interests. Having a legal firm gather testimony and evidence to support your case, identify the proper defendants, quantify your damages, and file the case increases your chances of a favorable court decision.
