What Constitutes Medical Malpractice in Florida?

Under Florida Statutes §766.101, medical malpractice occurs when medical professionals—such as nurses, providers, surgeons, radiologists, hospitals, and other healthcare personnel—fail to provide a reasonable standard of medical care to patients, resulting in preventable harm. 

The statute of limitations for filing a medical malpractice lawsuit in Florida is generally two years from the date the injury was discovered or should have been discovered. Before filing a medical malpractice lawsuit, a pre-suit process must be followed, which involves notifying the healthcare provider of the intent to sue and investigating the claim. 

If a medical malpractice claim is successful, the injured party may be entitled to compensation for various damages, including medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and more. 

It’s important to seek sound counsel from a qualified medical malpractice lawyer who can help fortify your case with relevant evidence, present a compelling argument to back up your claims, and negotiate effectively on your behalf with involved parties (such as insurers and medical organizations) to recover damages.

Commonly Asked Questions

What are the steps to take before filing a medical malpractice lawsuit in Florida?

In Florida, before filing a medical malpractice lawsuit, there is a mandatory pre-suit process that must be followed. This involves notifying the healthcare provider of the intent to initiate legal action and conducting a preliminary investigation of the claim. This process is designed to streamline the legal proceedings and encourage an out-of-court resolution if possible. It's crucial to consult with a knowledgeable attorney who can guide you through this process and ensure that all legal requirements are met to preserve your right to seek compensation.

What compensation can be recovered in a successful medical malpractice case in Florida?

If a medical malpractice claim in Florida is successful, the injured party may be entitled to recover compensation for a variety of damages. This can include reimbursement for medical expenses incurred due to the malpractice, compensation for lost wages if the injury affected the ability to work, and damages for pain and suffering. In some cases, punitive damages may also be awarded if the conduct of the healthcare provider was particularly egregious. An experienced attorney can help you understand the full scope of damages you may be eligible for.

Why is it important to hire a Florida-based attorney for a medical malpractice claim?

Hiring a Florida-based attorney for a medical malpractice claim is crucial because they are familiar with the specific laws and regulations that apply to medical malpractice cases in the state. They understand the local legal landscape, including the pre-suit requirements, statute of limitations, and standards of care that are unique to Florida. Additionally, a local attorney can leverage their knowledge of the Florida court system and relationships with medical experts to build a strong case on your behalf.

Proving Medical Negligence in Tallahassee

To successfully bring a medical malpractice lawsuit against an offending physician, provider, or medical organization, petitioners must establish various key elements, including:

  • Duty of Care: To effectively establish medical negligence in Florida, you must prove that your provider owed you a certain standard of medical care. 
  • Breach of Duty: Injured patients must establish that their provider breached the aforementioned duty of care through medical negligence. In other words, claimants must prove that the liable party deviated from the standard of care expected from similar professionals in similar circumstances. 
  • Damages: To initiate a medical malpractice lawsuit, victims must show that the harm resulting from medical malpractice is compensatory (e.g., there are recoverable damages to be sought). A medical malpractice lawyer can help clients pursue maximum compensation for their suffering. 
  • Causation: Causation is the most important element to establish in any medical malpractice case. Injured patients must prove that the medical professional's negligent actions directly caused the patient's injury.
