When you visit the emergency room, your physician or another medical professional for diagnosis and treatment of a health condition, you expect them to act responsibility, professionally and do everything in their power to help you recover. While the clear majority of doctors will, of course, do this, accidents can happen. Even the most careful and expert of healthcare professionals can make mistakes from time to time but, when the error leading to your injury or illness can be attributed to negligence, you may be entitled to pursue a medical malpractice lawsuit.
By determining whether your healthcare professional or facility breached their duty of care, a Miami medical malpractice attorney may recover monetary damages on your behalf when you have sustained a physical, emotional or mental injury. Our lawyers could also help when you have lost a loved one due to medical malpractice.
Although sustaining injuries while under the care of a healthcare professional may not be what you expected, it is important to remember that their duty of care is not a duty to cure, nor even to improve your condition. It is impossible for even the most diligent and experienced doctors to accurately predict what will happen in anyone’s future and, as such, their duty of care extends to providing good medical care according to the accepted standards within their area of medicine. Misdiagnosis can also occur even when all the correct tests have been carried out, and will only be considered medical malpractice when your doctor has failed to retrieve your medical history, order appropriate tests, or recognize observable symptoms of your illness.
Some of the ways in which medical malpractice does occur in Miami include:
There are numerous other types of medical malpractice under Florida law so, if you are unsure whether you have a valid case, speak to a Miami medical malpractice attorney for expert legal guidance and support.
