Florida Medical Malpractice injures thousands of people every year. The definition of medical malpractice is the failure of a medical professional or facility to meet the standard of good medical practice in the areas in which the medical professional or medical facility specializes. A medical professional may be a doctor, a nurse, a medical technician, or other health care provider. A medical facility may be a hospital, nursing home, medical testing facility or clinic.
If good medical standards are not met, harm may result to a patient and the medical professional or medical facility my be liable for any resulting damages. The Florida medical malpractice attorneys at our Florida Accident Injury Firm have represented victims of Erb’s Palsy, Cerebral Palsy, and other birth injuries. In addition, our Florida medical malpractice attorneys have represented victims of gastric bypass injuries, cancer misdiagnosis, anesthesia errors, surgical errors, hospital and nursing home negligence and dental malpractice.
Medical malpractice has become an epidemic in Florida as well as the entire United States. The 1990 Harvard School of Public Health study of medical malpractice found that:
- Nationally, more than 180,000 people die, at least in part, because of medical mistakes.
- Only one malpractice claim is made for every 7.6 hospital injuries.
According to the Institute of Medicine, between 44,000 and 98,000 people die in hospitals each year due to preventable medical malpractice. Most people expect the best care when seeing a doctor, surgeon or dentist. Sadly, in many cases, medical mistakes can lead to pain, suffering, lasting injuries and even wrongful death. Some types of medical malpractice include: improper use of anesthesia or improper drug administration, failure to properly diagnose an illness or disease, failure to order appropriate medical tests, failure to treat an illness or incorrect treatment of an illness, failure to refer to a specialist, failure of hospital to carry out doctor’s orders/instructions, unnecessary medical procedures or surgeries, labor and delivery mistakes resulting in birth injuries to the baby or injuries to the mother, and negligence.
