Do I Have a Case?

Medical malpractice occurs when a healthcare provider’s negligence causes a patient to suffer harm. Not all mistakes made by doctors and other medical professionals rise to the level of medical malpractice. To have a valid medical malpractice claim, you must be able to prove that the healthcare provider’s negligence caused your injuries and damages.

There are four elements of a medical malpractice claim in Florida:

  • The healthcare provider owed you a duty of care
  • The healthcare provider breached the duty of care
  • The breach of the duty of care caused your injuries
  • You suffered damages as a result of your injuries

How Long Do I Have to File a Lawsuit?

In Florida, the statute of limitations for medical malpractice claims is two years from the date of the injury or two years from the date the injury was discovered or should have been discovered, but no more than four years from the date of the injury.

If you do not file your medical malpractice lawsuit within the applicable statute of limitations, you will be barred from recovering compensation. Don't wait to contact an attorney if you think you have a case.

Is There a Cap on Medical Malpractice Damages in Florida?

As of March 2023, Florida law places a cap on non-economic damages in medical malpractice cases. Non-economic damages are those that are not easily quantifiable, such as pain and suffering, emotional distress, and loss of enjoyment of life.

In most cases, non-economic damages in medical malpractice cases are limited to $500,000.

There is no cap on economic damages in medical malpractice cases in Florida. Economic damages are those that are easily quantifiable, such as medical expenses, lost wages, and lost earning capacity. As such, you can recover 100% of your economic damages in a medical malpractice lawsuit.
