Medical negligence or malpractice occurs when a doctor, dentist, nurse, surgeon, or any other medical professional performs their job in a way that deviates from the accepted medical standard of care. Under Florida law, patients who are or have been seriously injured by physicians or hospitals have a right to sue for their damages. There must be medical negligence in some way that leads directly to your injury or damages. If another reasonable healthcare provider in the same situation would have handled your case differently, without hurting you, then your provider was likely negligent and may be responsible. Medical malpractice cases are very difficult and require the participation of medical experts who are willing to testify that a health care provider deviated from the standard of care. Under Florida law, patients who are or have been seriously injured by physicians or hospitals have a right to sue for their damages.
