Florida medical malpractice faqs
Here, we will answer just a few frequently asked questions (FAQs) about medical malpractice in Florida. This can help steer you in the right direction if you are trying to decide whether you need to hire a Florida medical malpractice lawyer.
Do I Need a Medical Malpractice Lawyer in Florida?
To determine whether you need a Florida medical malpractice attorney, you must first find out whether your doctor committed medical negligence. We will provide you with a description of medical negligence later in this article so that you can begin to understand the contours of a medical malpractice case.
What Do I Do if I was Hurt in Treatment?
If you have been a victim of medical malpractice during treatment of a healthcare problem or injury, Florida and every other state provides an avenue for recovery. You can file a negligence claim against your healthcare provider in the appropriate court and either negotiate a settlement with your healthcare provider or, if you cannot get the settlement you deserve, you might go to trial.
How Much Can I Recover for a Medical Injury in Florida?
You may be concerned about damage limits in Florida because up until recently, Florida had a law that dictated how much a plaintiff can recover for noneconomic damages in medical malpractice cases. However, there was a ruling by the Florida Supreme Court in 2017 that changed the law, stating that limits (caps) to the damages a victim can receive are unconstitutional. We will give this question more attention in the following section.
