What Constitutes Medical Malpractice in Florida?

Under Florida law, medical malpractice is an act or omission by a healthcare provider that deviates from the accepted standards of practice in the medical community, resulting in injury or death to the patient. Common examples include misdiagnosis, surgical errors, and medication mistakes by licensed physicians or other medical specialists.

Common Types of Medical Malpractice

Patients can suffer severe and even fatal injuries following medical malpractice. Negligence on the part of healthcare professionals and providers can inflict various forms of harm, such as: 

  • Birth injuries: Birth injuries are easily some of the most tragic accidents to occur as a result of medical error. Medical negligence during childbirth can result in long-term or permanent damage to the baby. Examples of birth injuries include cerebral palsy, Erb's palsy, or fractures caused by improper use of medical equipment or failure to monitor fetal distress.
  • Surgical errors: These entail preventable mistakes that occur during surgery. Surgical errors can range from operating on the wrong body part or patient to leaving a surgical instrument inside the patient to performing unnecessary surgery, resulting in significant harm or potentially life-threatening complications.
  • Anesthesia errors: Administering anesthesia is a delicate process. Errors such as overdose, failure to monitor the patient's vital signs, or not informing the patient of necessary preoperative procedures can lead to serious injury, brain damage, or even death.
  • Prescription errors: These errors encompass a wide range, including prescribing the wrong medication, incorrect dosage, or failure to consider a patient's allergies or drug interactions. Such errors can cause adverse reactions, exacerbate the patient's condition, or lead to new health issues.
  • Misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis: A misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis can lead to improper treatment, unnecessary procedures, or a complete lack of treatment, allowing the patient's condition to progress beyond a treatable stage. This can result in serious harm or fatality.
  • Failure to treat or prevent an illness or injury: This involves a healthcare provider's failure to follow established protocols for patient evaluation, diagnosis, or treatment, which can lead to worsening of the condition, development of new diseases, or preventable tragedies.

Proving Negligence in Medical Malpractice Cases

Proving negligence is the crux of any personal injury lawsuit, as this directly determines whether or not the victim is eligible for recoverable damages (e.g., compensation). In medical malpractice claims, proving liability on the part of medical personnel is imperative to securing fair compensation. 

Consulting with a medical malpractice attorney is essential, as they can guide your steps wisely, investigate the incident, and fortify your claims with strong evidence. Your lawyer can be an invaluable resource when it comes to establishing liability, as victims of medical malpractice must prove the existence of four key elements to successfully recover damages in Florida. These essential elements include:

  1. Duty of Care: The healthcare provider has a professional obligation to meet specific standards of care while treating the patient.
  2. Breach of Duty: The healthcare provider failed to meet these standards of care.
  3. Causation: This breach of duty was the direct cause of the patient's injury.
  4. Damages: The patient suffered quantifiable harm or damages due to this breach.

Remember, gathering and presenting evidence to substantiate these elements is a complex process requiring specialized legal knowledge and skills. Our attorneys are well-versed in the legal intricacies of medical malpractice claims in Marianna, making us a trusted resource for victims to navigate any legal complexities that arise during their case.
