What Is the Legal Standard for Malpractice?
Negligence is the standard for medical malpractice. A medical provider is negligent when they act unreasonably, causing harm as a result. A doctor, nurse, medical facility, or another party can be negligent.
Another standard, vicarious liability, may also apply to your case. Vicarious liability makes one party liable for the actions of another. For example, if a doctor is negligent, the healthcare provider that employs the doctor may also be liable.

Recoverable Damages in Medical Malpractice Cases
Each victim of medical malpractice has a unique story. Your losses are personal to you, so we must speak with you to identify those losses. We will also conduct an independent investigation to supplement your account of damages.
Losses that may entitle you to financial recovery are:
- The cost of negligent medical care
- The cost of secondary medical treatment required because of negligent care
- Pain and suffering
- Lost income
- Lost earning power
- A wrongful death
Some of these losses – like medical care and pain and suffering – encompass several more specific losses. Medical care may include imaging services, surgery, hospitalization, and many other expenses. Pain and suffering may cover traumatic memories, lost quality of life, depression, and other damages.

There May Be a Time Limit to File Your Case
Florida allows victims of medical malpractice to seek justice but imposes certain conditions. Per Florida Statutes § 95.11(4)(b), you generally have two years from discovering malpractice to file your case. There are exceptions to this statute, and we must consider:
- Whether you were aware of medical malpractice at the time that it occurred
- Whether certain signs of malpractice were not immediately clear, like an injury that took time to develop
- Whether other circumstances warrant an extension of the statute of limitations
You should not wait to hire our team.
