Medical Malpractice Consultation - Where to Start
Do you have a medical malpractice case?
A medical malpractice consultation with concierge attorney Anne Weintraub is a very good place to start to determine whether or not you have a case to pursue.
Medical malpractice is when a care provider’s negligence causes an injury to one of their patients.
On occasion when a medical procedure fails or medical care does not bring the expected outcome, we are left to wonder “what went wrong?”
If errors occur during diagnosis, treatment, aftercare, or health management, and the healthcare provider demonstrated negligence, that may be medical malpractice. When a patient’s condition gets worse or the patient experiences an unforeseen complication or a bad outcome, that alone does not meet the requirements of negligence.
Examples of such negligence include, but are not limited to:
- failure to recognize symptoms
- failure to diagnose
- misreading lab results
- failure to order proper testing
- unnecessary surgery
- surgical errors
- wrong-site surgery
- improper medication or dosage
- premature discharge
- disregarding patient history, and more.
Your Medical Malpractice Consultation
If you believe you or a loved one has been the victim of medical or health care negligence or some other form of malpractice, it is critical to discuss your case with an attorney who can help you understand whether you have a case and how to proceed.
The Statute of Limitations for Medical Malpractice in Florida
Time is of the essence when approaching the issue of medical malpractice. Start with a medical malpractice consultation.
Florida has a strict statute of limitations limiting the amount of time an injured patient has to bring a medical malpractice claim. A claim for medical malpractice must generally be brought within 2 years from the time of the incident giving rise to the injury or 2 years from the time the injury is discovered, but under most circumstances, a claim for medical malpractice cannot be brought more than 4 years from the date of the incident which caused the injury.
Building a medical malpractice case requires gathering evidence in the discovery process, which can take time. In addition, some of that evidence depends on memory than can fade and evidence that may be misplaced. We recommend you schedule a medical malpractice consultation as soon as you begin to question your situation.
