Do I Have a Medical Malpractice Case?
Florida Personal Injury Attorney Explains What Constitutes Negligence
Why should a person who has suffered medical malpractice injuries pursue legal action? By bringing lawsuits against negligent doctors and other healthcare practitioners, not only are we able to help our clients recover the damages that they are entitled to, but we can also change the medical field for the better. In this video, Miami medical malpractice attorney Joe Kalbac explains how holding doctors accountable for negligence can lead to positive changes in the field of medicine. Our law office is located near Miami, but we serve clients nationwide.
The reason you would pursue a medical negligence case is several fold. Number one is to receive fair compensation for your damages, your injuries or your death. Another reason that medical negligence cases should be investigated and oftentimes pursued is so that the practice changes so that the doctor, the nurse at the hospital, the medical care provider changes the way they deal with cases in the future and you can help avoid future situations that occurred to you. You can improve the quality of medicine to other patients going forward so that this doesn’t happen again. Medical negligence cases are the most complicated and the most legislated type of personal injury case that I handle. There are many, many statutes that are passed regularly from year to year to year, making it more and more difficult to pursue medical negligence cases and protect doctors and hospitals and other medical care providers. There is generally a two-year statute of limitations. That statute of limitations runs from the time you knew or should have known of the medical negligence.
