How Medical Malpractice Cases Work In Boca Raton

When a physician or other medical professional breaches their duty of care, a medical malpractice lawsuit is a legal way to collect financial compensation. The plaintiff must prove that the medical professional acted in a way that deviated from the accepted standards and that actual damage or losses occurred as a result.

Medical malpractice is most often the result of negligence. As your lawyer, we will prove that the medical professional acted negligently, causing the actual losses or damages you or your loved ones have experienced. In rare cases, medical malpractice is a result of wrongful action. 

For medical malpractice to be proven in a legal claim, all of the following requirements must be met:

  • The plaintiff is a patient of the physician or other medical professional.
  • The physician or medical professional acted negligently or wrongfully.
  • The negligent or wrongful act caused the injury or death.
  • The injury, harm, or death resulted in actual damages that can be legally claimed.

In many medical malpractice cases, proving negligence and fault can be incredibly difficult, especially when going up against large insurance firms. Our team has experience winning justice for our clients, no matter the circumstances. While we hope that we can settle your case and win your compensation quickly through mediation negotiations, we will fight for your rights in a trial if needed.

How soon should I file my medical malpractice case?

Boca Raton medical malpractice cases should be filed within the period of time set by Florida’s statute of limitations. In Florida, medical malpractice injury actions must be brought forth within two years from the date of the injury. 

If the lawsuit involves a death, a wrongful death claim can be brought forth to the local court within two years as well. Outside of these time periods, it’s likely that you won’t be able to receive compensation through a legal claim.
