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.

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.

    "They treated me like family."
    Perry & Young Law Firm represented me with my discrimination case. Mrs. Jeanetta Brown conducted my intake and was a great pleasure to work with! From the beginning of initial contact to the end of my settlement, they treated me like family. The defendants wanted to treat me as a nuance, but my Perry & Young Law Firm didn’t treat me as such and made sure I was fairly compensated. I appreciate their patience, handling my case with care, and respect!
