Today we begin a new series on the basics of medical malpractice in Florida. If you have been injured as a result of a medical mistake, it may be possible that you have a malpractice case. Legally Pink Law is your Orlando medical malpractice attorney to assess the situation and determine whether your case should go to court.
Medical malpractice is when a healthcare provider’s negligent mistake injures a patient. Not every medical mistake, however, can be classified as medical malpractice. If you have been injured due to a negligence on the part of a doctor, nurse, hospital facility, or any other medical professional or place of care, it’s possible that you could have a claim.
One factor to consider is “standard of care.” There is an acceptable, reasonable, and appropriate level of care, skill, and treatment for each patient given all the specifics of the person’s age, condition, and history. If a medical professional fails to rise to the “standard of care,” a negligent medical mistake may have occurred.
