Can I Sue My Doctor For Malpractice?

When Medical Malpractice Is To Blame For Injury Or Death

What is medical malpractice? Medical malpractice or medical negligence is, most simply stated, a failure by your health care provider to treat, monitor or care for you in the same way that another health care provider would consider appropriate or correct given your unique circumstances.

To prove that medical malpractice is to blame for injury or death, it must be proven that your health care provider breached the standard of care. If a mistake by your health care provider has caused you serious injury or taken the life of a loved one, contact the Florida lawyers of Freidin Dobrinsky Brown & Rosenblum, P.A. for a free consultation to discuss your questions about suing a doctor for malpractice.

Can I Sue My Doctor For Malpractice?

Yes, if your doctor made a mistake in your care, your treatment plan or a medical procedure, you may have a claim for medical malpractice against him or her. Often, many people are involved in your care whether you are in your doctor's office, urgent care, the emergency room or the hospital.

Who Can Be Held Responsible For Medical Negligence In Florida? In Florida, any health care provider whose actions result in injury or death to a patient can be held responsible for medical negligence. In addition to doctors, surgeons and nurses, this includes:

  • Hospitals
  • Surgery centers
  • Birthing centers
  • Labs
  • Health maintenance organizations (HMO)
  • Associations of health care professionals (like a partnership or corporation)

Another piece of the medical malpractice lawsuit puzzle is figuring out who can sue for serious, permanent or fatal injuries that result from a medical mistake. In Florida, it is not just the person who was injured who may have a right to sue a negligent doctor, surgeon or other health care provider. The injured patient's family may also bring a medical malpractice or wrongful death lawsuit under certain circumstances.
