What is Medical Malpractice?

For as long as you can remember if you felt sick you would go to the doctor to see what is wrong. We’ve all grown up to trust the doctor’s opinion and rely on their diagnosis and care to make us feel better. Unfortunately, not all diagnoses or treatment plans are accurate and/or the treatment is implemented

incorrectly. When an inaccurate diagnosis or poor execution of treatment results in a terrible injury or even death it is medical malpractice.

Malpractice occurs when a healthcare worker, doctor or surgeon makes a mistake that injures a patient. A malpractice case will require three specific factors:

  • Negligence – The doctor was negligent and his actions fell below the standard of care set forth in Florida Statute 766.102
  • Injury – The negligence caused a death or injury
  • Damages – The injury led to specific damages (both economic and non-economic)

Some examples of potential medical malpractice claims are:

  • Amputation
  • Anesthesia Errors
  • Childbirth Injuries
  • Delay or Failure To Diagnose
  • Dental malpractice (nerve damage, wrongful death)
  • Emergency Room Errors
  • Failure to properly sanitize medical equipment
  • Hospital Malpractice
  • Medication Errors
  • Misdiagnosis
  • Negligent Prenatal Care
  • Retained Surgical Equipment
  • Spinal Cord Injuries/Paralysis
  • Surgical Mistakes
  • Unnecessary Surgery
  • Wrong Site/Side Injuries

malpractice; call us today at Rubenstein Law (1-800-FL-LEGAL) for a no charge evaluation of your specific situation.

Some Helpful Q&A's
Q

How long do I have to file a medical malpractice claim?

A

In Florida, medical malpractice claims generally have a statute of limitations of two years from the date you knew or should have known about the negligent act. There are a few exceptions to this law and although they are not common it is worth your time to contact Rubenstein Law at 1-800-FL-LEGAL for a thorough evaluation of your case.


Q

Who pays for the costs in my case? Are they included in the percentage fee?

A

There are certain costs that our firm pays on your behalf during the course of your case. These might include charges for:

  • Copies of records & reports
  • Mail expenses
  • Investigation expenses
  • Expert witness fees
  • Various other costs

Similar to most personal injury firms, Rubenstein Law requires that these costs be paid back out of your settlement, separate from our percentage fee. If you do not receive any settlement or judgment, our firm will not require that you pay us back for the costs we paid on your behalf.
