Medical MalpracticeHow to Prove

The four elements required to prove medical malpractice in Florida are:

  • An expert duty owed to the patient by a doctor
  • The breach of that duty
  • Injury or death caused by said breach
  • Resulting damages

Medical MalpracticeStatute of Limitations

Medical malpractice cases that include tragedies such as improper administration of anesthesia, direct damage post-surgery, deviation from the standard of care, or misdiagnosis of medications that result in pain and suffering are the most common occurrences. If you’ve been sidelined due to medical malpractice, experienced a loss of future earnings or are currently suffering mental or physical pain due to a faulty procedure, the Florida state statute of limitations allows patients up to two years to file a medical malpractice claim.
