Medical Malpractice Personal Injury

Every year thousands of people are injured by the negligence of doctors and hospitals. Proving and obtaining a recovery for medical malpractice is extremely complex and requires a dedicated and skilled attorney. Personal injuries from medical malpractice can result from doctors, nurses, technicians or other healthcare providers.

If you suspect that you have suffered an injury as a result of medical malpractice, it is important that you immediately contact an attorney as there are strict procedures and deadlines that must be followed.

Key Florida Statutes:

95.11(4)(b) Statute of Limitations: A malpractice lawsuit must be filed within 2 years.

766.203 Pre-Lawsuit Investigation: Before filing a malpractice action an investigation must be performed to determine whether there are reasonable grounds to believe malpractice has occurred, and the investigation must be supported by a verified statement from a medical expert.

766.106 Pre-Lawsuit Notice: Before filing a malpractice action the claimant is required to give each prospective defendant a 90 day notice of intent to file a lawsuit. Upon receiving the notice, each prospective defendant is required to conduct an investigation into the claim and provide a written response stating: (1) whether potential defendant rejects the claim; (2) offers to settle the claim; or (3) offers to admit wrongdoing and participate in arbitration to determine an appropriate damage award.
