Common Medical Malpractice Questions Answered by a Personal Injury Lawyer
What Qualifies as Medical Malpractice?
Medical professionals are expected to meet an established standard of care when handling patients. When a doctor is negligent during his/her duties, and if such negligence results in a patient’s injury, it is considered medical negligence (also known as medical malpractice). The most common forms of medical negligence cases include:
- Failure to diagnose and/or improperly treating a patient
- Failure to warn a patient of risks and side-effects
- Surgical errors (such as prescribing the wrong types of medical procedures on patients; leaving tools inside of a patient, etc.)
What Is “Informed Consent”?
The doctor is responsible for letting the patient know of all risks, benefits, and details of the actual procedure before performing the procedure and/or treating the patient. If the patient does not consent to the procedures, the doctor does not have the right to operate. The doctor also does not have the right to operate on a patient if he/she fails to provide the patient with detailed information on the treatment plan. Failure to establish informed consent qualifies as medical malpractice.
What To Do If You Suspect Medical Malpractice
If you suspect that you or a family member is a victim of medical malpractice, you should contact the medical professional immediately to discover if anything went wrong during the process. If your concerns are not eased, you should then contact the medical licensing board.
If the injury resulting from medical malpractice leads to physical pain, mental anxiety, lost wages, and/or costly expenses, an experienced medical malpractice lawyer can assist you with a medical malpractice claim in order to gain rightful compensation.
It is crucial that you contact a medical malpractice attorney immediately because of Florida’s statute of limitations on medical malpractice cases. According to Florida Statute 95.11 (3), a patient has approximately four years to present a valid claim after he/she experienced a medical malpractice injury. However, medical malpractice claims are much more successful when filed closer to the date of the actual injury/event.
