Is My Back Injury a Result of Medical Malpractice?
Back injuries can be very traumatic, especially when caused by someone you trust. We have seen people’s lives devastated instantly at the hands of medical professionals such as spinal surgeons and chiropractors. Any injury or death that is directly caused by a healthcare professional constitutes medical malpractice. At Lytal, Reiter, Smith, Ivey &Fronrath, our team of Florida back injury attorneys are dedicated to helping everyone who is in need of an experienced medical malpractice lawyer.
Confronting Medical Malpractice for 25 Years
Do I have a back injury lawsuit? Back injuries can have devastating effects. The spinal column is the housing for many essential nerves, so injury to this delicate area can cause serious damage including vertigo, chronic headaches, vision impairment, stroke, and paralysis. Not every back injury is the result of medical malpractice. For example, if you underwent surgery to fix a previously existing back injury and the outcome was not what you hoped, this might not be sufficient claim for medical malpractice. However, if your injury was the result of your health care provider’s negligence or if they did something another reasonable provider would not have done, you could be eligible to file a medical malpractice claim.
Some examples where filing a claim may be warranted are:
- A back injury that did not previously exist was incurred during an unrelated surgery, chiropractic adjustment, or other medical treatment.
- A previously existing back injury was made worse due to the negligence of a healthcare provider.
- Receiving the improper treatment for a back injury.
- Neglecting or delaying to treat a back injury that results in more problems.
Because negligence and causation of damages can be difficult to prove in back injury cases, consult with a Florida back injury attorney to determine whether you are eligible to file a claim.
