How Medical Malpractice Cases Work In West Palm Beach

If a medical professional or doctor has breached their duty of care, you may be able to claim compensation for their negligence or wrongful act in a medical malpractice lawsuit. Medical malpractice is when a physician or other medical professional deviates from the accepted standard of care, and actual damages or losses occurred as a result. 

When proving negligence in a medical malpractice lawsuit, all of the following must exist:

  • The victim was a patient of the physician or other medical professional.
  • The physician or other medical professional acted negligently or maliciously.
  • The doctor or medical professional’s negligent or wrongful act directly caused the victim’s injury or death.
  • The harm or death caused actual damages, such as special damages, general damages, and punitive damages.

Proving negligence and fault can be incredibly difficult without the help of an experienced, respected medical malpractice lawyer. A lawyer at our West Palm Beach personal injury firm can help you understand the ins and outs of your unique case and legal claim, helping you choose the right path forward.

When should I file a medical malpractice case?

After medical malpractice occurs, a victim must file a case within a specific period set forth by the state of Florida’s statute of limitations. For medical malpractice or wrongful death claims, the Florida statute of limitations allows claims to be filed within two years from the date of the accident. Outside of this time period, you will likely not be able to collect compensation through a lawsuit.
