Medical Malpractice Lawyer Hollywood, Florida

Medical malpractice is the result of a healthcare provider’s failure to provide the expected standard of care. Unfortunately, some doctors cause harm through their mistakes, ignorance, negligence, lack of skill and misdiagnosis. By utilizing the best research and the finest medical professionals for evaluation, our law office can qualify the merit of your case.

Legally, healthcare professionals are only required to give a standard of care that is ordinary or normal. When a physician is determined to be negligent, it means that he or she has failed to use the same degree of skill and learning, under the same or similar circumstances that are used by other members of the medical profession.

Some of the most common ways that medical malpractice occurs is through failure or errors in timely diagnosis and ordering appropriate treatment, ordering necessary tests and proper medication, consulting with specialists, and surgical procedures. Although there are numerous types of malpractice claims, here are the most common:

  • Wrongful death.
  • Birth defects or injuries.
  • Hospital, physician, and nursing negligence.
  • Misdiagnosis.
  • Pharmaceutical (Medication) errors.
  • Surgical errors.
  • Anesthesia errors.
  • Emergency Room errors.
  • Radiology errors.
  • Failure to properly diagnose or treat cancer.

If a medical doctor is found negligent, you can recover “money damages.” Damages are intended to help you return to your condition before the injury. There are several forms of damages that you may recover in a medical malpractice award – economic (for lost wages or medical expenses), non-economic (for pain and suffering), or punitive damages (to punish reckless behavior). You may also receive compensation for future medical expenses and loss of future earnings.
