Think It’s A Medical Malpractice Case? Call A Lawyer.
Malpractice lawsuits tend to be more complex than most other personal injury cases. They are not filed over simple matters or a minor mistreatment, but rather extensive harm that was caused by a doctor or other medical professional. Keep in mind, there is a strong difference between neglect and malpractice. Neglect is usually considered more minor. Some of the basic guidelines of medical malpractice are as follows:
- There must be a definite patient/doctor relationship. For example, casual talk from medical staff that are not involved with your care cannot be relied on and does not apply.
- There must be negligence by the doctor. Instances such as medication mix-ups, surgical errors or ignoring a patient’s health conditions would be a few examples.
- There must be an injury. The pain and physical damages involved with the case must have been caused from the doctor’s negligence.
In addition to all of this, if you’re considering filing for an incident that occurred in Miami, you must contact your lawyer to begin filing your claim before Florida’s statue of limitations has surpassed. For most malpractice cases, it is two years from when the injury was noticed, up to four years from the actual occurrence. The longer you delay contacting a lawyer, the closer your statute of limitation gets. The specific details of these unique cases take time to investigate, so time is of the essence.
