Medical Malpractice Law
Medical malpractice is negligence that results in an injury or loss of life because a doctor, nurse, surgeon, hospital, dentist, psychiatrist or other health care professional or entity failed to administer adequate treatment to a patient. Health practitioners are obligated to provide a standard level of care, skill or diligence that should be reasonably expected under the applicable circumstances; if they are negligent and fail to adhere to standard practices, resulting in a patient's injury or death, a medical malpractice attorney may be able to pursue a claim on behalf of a victim for monetary compensation for lost wages, medical bills, and pain and suffering.

Medical Malpractice Lawsuits
Medical malpractice law allows injured victims to seek compensation if a negligent party or entity caused an injury or death. If the patient’s injury is too severe or if the victim passes away, some members of the patient’s family may be able to pursue a medical malpractice claim. To obtain justice and compensation for a medical malpractice case, proof of negligence is required. Determining who is liable in medical malpractice cases may be complicated – it may be the doctor or other medical professional that caused harm to the patient, or it may be a city or state-owned hospital. An experienced injury attorney can evaluate a potential malpractice claim and help prove who is legally responsible.
When to File a Medical Malpractice Claim
Florida has a statute of limitations for medical malpractice lawsuits. To receive maximum compensation, a claim must be made within a certain period of time after the potential negligent injury is discovered. Contacting a medical malpractice lawyer at Burnetti, P.A. as early as possible may help ensure that deadlines are not passed.
