Florida Medical Malpractice Attorney
If you or a loved one suspect that a medical professional made a mistake that caused harm, there may be a valid claim for medical negligence in Florida. Medical professionals sometimes injure or kill their patients by not treating them within the professional standard of care under the circumstances. This means that medical negligence occurs when a doctor, nurse, or other medical professional makes a mistake that a reasonable medical professional in their position should never make. When these medical mistakes happen, lives can be irreversibly changed for the worse.
Call Slotin Law at (904) 710-9901 if you suspect that you have been injured or another has been killed by medical negligence.
Common Types of Med Mal Cases
Some common types of medical practice include:
- Birth injury or trauma
- Surgical errors
- Failing to diagnose or misdiagnosing
- Failing to appropriately treat a condition
- Failing to provide enough information about all the risks of treatment
- Pharmaceutical errors
- Defective medical devices or products
- Administrative errors
- Nursing home abuse or neglect
Understand the Preset Requirement in Medical Malpractice Cases
Importantly, Chapter 766 of Florida Statutes requires medical malpractice actions to go through a process before a lawsuit can be filed for personal injury or wrongful death cases. This “presuit” requires your law firm to draft a letter to the medical professionals or facilities at fault with an affidavit of support from a qualified expert. A medical malpractice firm, like Slotin Law, with experience in this presuit process is essential for success in your medical malpractice lawsuit.
Florida Statute of Limitations on Med Mal Cases
In addition to the presuit process, Florida’s statute of limitations for medical malpractice is only two (2) years long—half the time for a negligence action. So, it is important to work with a medical malpractice firm, like Slotin Law, right away.
