What is Medical Malpractice?

Every industry includes good and bad – people who do their best to provide quality service and those who don’t. Even the most professional and well-intentioned person can make a mistake from time to time. Unfortunately, the healthcare industry isn’t immune to this human component, and sometimes very bad things can happen. In Florida, more people die each year from medical malpractice than other, more publicized causes of death such as car accidents. The sad thing is that many who are victims of medical malpractice don’t realize that they received poor care, and those who do often struggle to hold the healthcare professionals liable. If you suspect that you or a loved one was injured or killed because of medical malpractice, you need a Florida medical malpractice lawyer who understands these often complex issues.

Medical malpractice results when a doctor, nurse, or other medical professional causes injury or death because they failed to provide reasonable care. The damage suffered can vary, spanning every imaginable medical service from prenatal health to end of life care.
