Helping you recognize and understand instances of medical malpractice

Medical malpractice is considered any type of negligent actions or behaviors by health care providers that lead to death or injury. Health care providers are required to provide a standard of care, skill and treatment that is acceptable and appropriate in comparison with other similar and reasonably prudent providers. Health care providers include:

• Doctors
Walk-in Clinics
• Nurse practitioners and physician assistants
• Nurses
• Paramedics and EMTs
• Patient care techs
Hospitals and medical clinics
Neonatal ICUs

Medical malpractice claims commonly arise from:

Surgical errors
Medication errors
Birth injuries and defects
Pharmaceutical errors
Failure to diagnose
Defective or dangerous products and devices

Regardless of what type of injuries you have suffered, Florida’s statutes of limitations requires that all medical malpractice claims be filed within two years from the date of injury or the date you discovered the injury. Even beyond this, no medical malpractice claims may be brought four years beyond the date of injury unless there is intentional fraud, concealment or misrepresentation by the healthcare provider.

What is sovereign immunity?

The principle of sovereign immunity limits the amount of damages victims are able to recover from the state and its agencies and subdivisions. State agencies and subdivisions include the executive, legislative and judicial branches of government, state universities, counties, municipalities and certain corporations. Sovereign immunity caps damage amounts at $200,000 per person and $300,000 per claim. Our malpractice attorneys take the time to communicate with you throughout each stage of the process and provide the education and resources you need to make sound decisions for your case.
