Justice for the injured
When we are either sick or injured we put our trust in doctors, hospitals or clinics. We expect that these qualified medical specialists will diagnosis the problem and recommend a course of treatment to cure our illness or injury. Unfortunately, mistakes that result in major physical or permanent damage are sometimes made.
Politicians and health care providers would like you to believe that malpractice cases are rare and that the entire subject is blown way out of proportion. However, this is completely untrue. In fact, medical malpractice has become one of the highest causes of death and injury in the United States today. Each year thousands of people die or suffer major injuries and permanent damage as a result of medical mistakes.
The dictionary defines malpractice as a dereliction of professional duty or a failure of professional skill that results in injury, loss or damage. This includes the following:
- birth injuries
- wrongful death
- anesthesiologist error
- improper medication and dosages
- diagnosis and surgical error
Also, if you did not give what is known as “informed consent” to a medical procedure that resulted in an injury, even if the procedure was done perfectly, that is malpractice. Your doctor must inform you of all the potential benefits, risks and alternatives involved in any surgery or medical procedure.
In Florida, you must file a medical malpractice lawsuit within two (2) years from the time of the original injury or after the injury was discovered.
