What is Medical Malpractice?

Medical professionals have a fury to care for their patients. When they fail in maintaining their responsibility, and it results in injury or death, they can be held liable for medical malpractice. Although these cases are rare, they can have catastrophic consequences for patients and their families, which is why there are several legal protections for patients in these scenarios.

How Long Do I Have to File a Medical Malpractice Lawsuit?

The Florida statute of limitation for medical malpractice is within two years from discovering the injury. In some cases, you have up to four years from when the malpractice occurs; this means that even if there was no way you could have known about the injury, the case would be thrown out if it’s not brought to court within that timeframe. The major exception for this scenario is if a medical professional made attempts to conceal their negligence fraudulently.

What are Common Types of Medical Malpractice?

  • Injuries during childbirth
  • Misdiagnosis
  • Accidents during surgeries or similar procedures
  • Misapplication of anesthetics
