Medical malpractice is a term that describes the negligence of a medical professional or medical facility (doctor, nurse, medical technician, psychiatrist, hospital or health-care facility) to exercise adequate care, skill or diligence in performing a duty where an injury or death is the result. Our Medical Malpractice Lawyer in Sunny Isles Beach will ensure you get compensated to the fullest in this type of cases. The determination of whether duty of care is met depends on the standard of care for that professional or facility. In other words, the applicable duty arises from the accepted practices of other professionals or facilities in the same field and geographical area. In the case of a doctor who is a medical specialist, the standard of care is determined by the standard of good medical practice in that specialty within the community. For someone who suffers a physical, emotional or mental injury or even death at the hands of the doctor, nurse, or other hospital worker during a treatment, Medical Malpractice or Medical Negligence in Sunny Isles Beach provides an opportunity to receive compensation for these injuries.
It is important to remember that the duty of a medical professional is not the duty to cure, or even to guarantee a good outcome from treatment. Medical malpractice does not occur every time medical treatment is not successful. Rather, the duty is to provide good medical care according to accepted standards in the community, or, in the case of a specialist, accepted standards in that medical specialty. Medicine is not an exact science, and doctors are not required to be right every time they make a diagnosis. A misdiagnosis can be arrived at even when all proper tests are performed accurately or evaluated by a skilled doctor with the utmost care. A misdiagnosis becomes malpractice, however, if the doctor fails to get a medical history, order the appropriate tests, or recognize observable symptoms of the illness.
In Sunny Isles Beach, Florida, in order to prove that you were injured due to the failure of a health provider, you must show that the health care provider failed to exercise a duty of care and the failure was the proximate cause of the injury.
The concept of medical malpractice negligence is very broad and encompasses virtually every kind of mistake that could be made by a medical professional. The most common cases brought against doctors in Sunny Isles Beach are:

Injured due to the negligent treatment of a healthcare provider in Sunny Isles Beach, such as a hospital, doctor, nurse or medical assistant. Call to speak with a lawyer now, I want to be your attorney!
We work tirelessly to get you the compensation you deserve for your accident.
A doctor has a duty to you to use care and diligence to diagnose your illness so that the proper treatment can be recommended. In order to properly diagnose a condition, a doctor should ask about a patient’s medical history as well as his or her family’s medical history. The doctor also should ask for a detailed description of current symptoms and should perform a thorough examination which includes necessary diagnostic tests.
Example: After hurting your wrist you go to your family doctor, but he concludes it is just a sprain and doesn’t request an X-ray, which would have revealed a fracture. The fracture goes undetected, and as a result, a permanent and debilitating injury to your wrist results. The doctor may be negligent for failing to order an X-ray, or possibly not referring you to an Sunny Isles Beach orthopedist.
Doctors also have a duty to disclose information pertaining to the treatment you will receive. If your condition is such that it is beyond the scope of practice of the examining doctor, or beyond the doctor’s expertise, he/she must refer you to a specialist. If your doctor fails to follow these basic principles, and injury is caused as a result, you may have a case for a malpractice claim. Medical malpractice in Sunny Isles Beach can occur at any point in the diagnosis and treatment course. For example, the wrong chart could be placed at your hospital bedside, resulting in you being given medication that you are allergic to that causes serious harm or even death.
