Medical Negligence and Healthcare Provider Fails 

Should a South Florida healthcare provider fail to follow the recognized standard of care that results in preventable harm to a patient, a medical malpractice lawyer must have a deep understanding of Miami’s hospital systems. 

Understanding the Medical Malpractice Claims Process 

For victims seeking justice and compensation, it’s vital to comprehend the medical malpractice claims process. We guide clients through this process, assisting them in filing a claim, gathering evidence, and proving negligence. 

The initial step involves obtaining an affidavit from a medical professional, confirming the correlation between the patient’s injuries or illness and a medical 

error. Furthermore, it is important to note that there is a legal timeframe within which all medical malpractice lawsuits must be filed, requiring submission within seven years from the date of the incident.

We assist clients in this process, ensuring that they follow the statutory time frame requirements for initiating a medical malpractice claim in the state of Florida. An experienced medical malpractice attorney will assist with the process required for filing a claim. 

Gathering Evidence 

Amassing evidence is vital for constructing a robust medical malpractice lawsuit. Medical documentation offers a timeline, insights into the thought process and decision-making of a healthcare provider, and records the information available to them at the time of treatment, all of which are crucial in demonstrating what took place during the patient’s care. An experienced medical malpractice lawyer has the necessary relationships with Miami’s medical communities and medical experts to ensure that the evidence required is available.

Establishing negligence forms the cornerstone of securing victory in a medical malpractice case for a medical malpractice lawyer.
