Medical Malpractice

Medical malpractice is one of the most devastating types of injuries a victim can suffer. When you go to see a doctor, you place an enormous amount of trust in your care provider. You expect you will be treated with compassion and respect, that your condition will be properly diagnosed, and that you will get competent treatment.

When this does not happen, mistakes your doctor makes can cost your health or your life.

Florida law provides protection for those whose trust in their doctor is abused. If a medical care provider failed you by providing substandard care, you need to seek the legal protections that allow you to obtain compensation. Freeman Injury Law provides legal representation to victims harmed by medical negligence and to those whose loved ones have died due to substandard medical care. Our West Palm Beach medical malpractice lawyers know what it takes to build successful cases against doctors, hospitals and their insurance companies. Don’t suffer financial loss while your doctor or care provider gets away with mistakes — give us a call today to get help pursuing a claim for compensation.

Types of Medical Malpractice

Malpractice can be committed by general practitioners, surgeons, other specialists, including anesthesiologists, dentists, chiropractors. Hospitals, clinics, and anyone else who assumes a duty to provide you with medical treatment may be held accountable. Many different things that a care provider does can be considered medical malpractice, including:

  • Failure to diagnose a medical condition
  • Incorrectly diagnosing a medical condition
  • Failure to follow up or to provide the results of lab tests
  • Botched procedures
  • Delayed treatments
  • Failure to obtain informed consent
  • Medication errors
  • Dangerous or defective medical products and pharmaceuticals

Your doctor and other care providers have a duty to provide you with treatment that is at least as competent and at least as professional as an average reasonable care provider with the same experience and background. This is a professional standard of care. Both actions and omissions can be a violation of this duty to provide professional quality medical care.

Making a Medical Malpractice Claim

While doctors have obligations to all of their patients, they are not expected to be perfect. In order for a care provider to be held accountable for medical malpractice, it is necessary to show not just that a doctor was negligent or made an error, but also that this error affected the outcome of your treatment. In other words, you must show you suffered actual harm as a result of mistakes by doctor, hospital or care provider.

It can be very difficult for plaintiffs to make a successful medical malpractice claim, because the burden of proving injury or damages falls on the plaintiff. You must be able to make a jury understand what your doctor did wrong, and how the doctor’s failures affected your health adversely. You are going to need expert witnesses to help you make your case, and the doctor will have competing experts so your witnesses must be competent and credible.

Our medical malpractice attorneys in West Palm Beach have helped many clients build strong cases to convince a jury that a plaintiff is entitled to be fully and fairly compensated for losses a doctor has caused.
