Medical Malpractice Lawyer Miami Florida

What can you do if you are seriously injured because of careless healthcare treatment? Shouldn’t you be fairly compensated for your medical expenses, your lost income, and for your pain and suffering.

Unlike with a car accident or a fall caused by someone’s negligence,

Florida and many other states require a pre-lawsuit investigation period in medical malpractice cases.

The injured person’s medical records need to be reviewed by a medical expert. The expert determines whether the healthcare provider failed to meet a reasonable standard of medical care.

If the written opinion of the expert is that the healthcare provider failed to meet a reasonable standard of medical care, a notice of intent to initiate a medical malpractice lawsuit must then be served on the health care provider.

In Florida, this notice must ordinarily be served within two years of the time the malpractice occurred or was reasonably discoverable, although there are some exceptions.

After the notice is served, the healthcare provider then has 90 days to investigate and settle the claim with the injured person before a lawsuit can be filed. The case may still be settled later at mediation or could proceed to trial.

Medical malpractice cases are more complex than most personal injury lawsuits. Although every case is different, settlements and damage awards in medical malpractice cases can be very large.
