The Four Legal Elements of Medical Malpractice in Florida

Before we can request compensation for your damages, we must establish that your doctor committed medical malpractice. To prove that your doctor was guilty of medical negligence and is liable for your losses, we must collect evidence showing that four details were true in your case.

The Provider Had a Duty of Care to You.

For the healthcare provider to be liable for your damages, they must have had a duty of care to you. This is established by a doctor-patient relationship. We can prove this relationship with doctor bills, patient agreements, appointment records, and other evidence.

The Doctor Provided Substandard or Inadequate Care.

Next, we must demonstrate that the doctor provided substandard treatment and breached their duty to you. The evidence we use to prove this includes medical records, testimony from other doctors, and expert witness statements.

You Suffered Injuries as a Result.

We have to show a cause-and-effect link between the substandard or inadequate care you received and your injuries.

Your Injuries Resulted in Economic or Non-Economic Damages.

Finally, we must show the economic damages, such as medical expenses and lost wages, and non-economic damages, such as pain and suffering, that resulted from your injuries.

The Required Elements of a Medical Malpractice Complaint

Once we have gathered the evidence for your claim, we can file a complaint in accordance with the Florida malpractice laws. Our complaint must contain the following:

We must also work with a medical expert to certify that we have conducted a reasonable pre-suit investigation and that we believe malpractice occurred in your case.

After the complaint has been filed and served upon the defendants, we must provide a copy to the Florida Department of Health. In some cases, we must also provide copies to additional state agencies.

This process can take time, which is why we recommend you contact us immediately if you believe malpractice occurred in your case. The Florida statute of limitations gives you two years from the date you discovered the malpractice to file a lawsuit. If you are not within the statute of limitations, you might not be able to recover damages.

The Damages You Might Be Eligible to Recover in a Medical Malpractice Settlement or Judgment

When we investigate your claim and review the evidence, we can begin to paint a picture of the damages you have suffered and the compensation you deserve. Many medical malpractice victims win substantial sums in court judgments and out-of-court settlements. Our goal is to recover compensation for the full scope of your economic and non-economic losses.

Depending on the details of your case, your settlement could include compensation for the following losses.

Medical Bills

We pursue compensation for your current and expected future medical costs associated with your injuries.

Lost Wages and Reduced Earning Capacity

If you cannot work while you recover from your injuries, we seek compensation for the wages you are forgoing. We also seek damages for any loss of earning capacity you suffer on account of your injuries.

Pain and Suffering and Emotional Anguish

You could be eligible for substantial compensation for your physical pain and suffering and emotional anguish.

Wrongful Death

If your loved one lost their life because they received substandard or inadequate care from a healthcare professional, we pursue the responsible party for wrongful death damages on their behalf.

Punitive Damages

If we discover evidence that the provider who caused your injuries acted in a reckless or malicious manner, a judge might award punitive damages in addition to other compensation.
