Medical malpractice results primarily when a health care provider fails to perform accepted standards of medical practice. Some factors may include misdiagnosis, negligence, mismanagement, or a mistake made during surgery or treatment causing a new ailment or injury.
Medical malpractice occurs far too frequently in Florida. We all experience a strong emotion of suffering along with disloyalty any time someone you care about is needlessly injured by healthcare providers to whom we have trusted our health and wellness or the well-being of our loved ones. Unfortunately, many individuals have experienced careless medical treatment.
We entrust our lives and health to doctors, hospitals, nurses and testing facilities. For the most part, these professionals ably address the varied medical problems that we face daily. Fortunately, in this county we are blessed with the best medical care in the world and the medical standards for conduct of these professionals reflect such.
However, there are times when we go to our health care providers and are not satisfied with the results. Medical malpractice is simply when a health care professional, doctor, nurse, technician, or hospital makes a mistake that results in injury or death. Please keep in mind that not all unexpected or bad results are medical malpractice. To constitute medical malpractice, the health care professional’s conduct must have been below the accepted standard of care for his profession.
