What is Medical Malpractice?
You may be wondering what actually constitutes medical malpractice. In most cases, medical malpractice involves negligence by health care professionals that result in serious harm, injury and/or death. Negligence does not imply intent, meaning that the doctor, nurse or staff member may not intend to harm a patient, but through certain actions or inactions, a patient suffers needlessly.
While not an exhaustive list, the following are concrete illustrations of the most common forms of medical malpractice.
- Surgical errors and anesthesia mistakes
- Emergency room negligence
- Failure to diagnose (cancer, heart attack, etc.)
- Birth injury
- Medication errors, including pharmacy errors
- Plastic surgery and breast implants complications
Florida law requires that a medical expert reviews the medical records and signs an affidavit that indicates a reasonable basis for malpractice. The potential defendants are served with a Notice of Intent to Sue. They then have about 90 days to acknowledge the negligence and/or deny the claim before the victim can proceed with a lawsuit.
Few claims are settled without a formal lawsuit. In fact, a high number of those cases travel all the way to a jury. Experienced medical malpractice lawyer Mr. Miller has litigated numerous medical malpractice cases, which typically require testimony by several medical experts at hefty fees. The Law Offices of Brent C. Miller bears these considerable upfront costs, and we are repaid only if we secure compensation for you in a pre-trial settlement or jury award.
