Guidance From a Florida Medical Malpractice Attorney
We place our trust in medical providers, but doctors, surgeons and medical professionals are human beings and sometimes they make mistakes that can lead to pain, suffering and long-term consequences for their patients. If you think you may be a victim of malpractice, contact medical malpractice attorney Richard A. Bokor at Bokor Law to discuss your case.
WHAT IS A MEDICAL MALPRACTICE CLAIM?
A medical malpractice claim is a claim against a medical provider who fails to meet the acceptable standard of care and injures a patient.
ARE MALPRACTICE CLAIMS ONLY BROUGHT AGAINST DOCTORS?
Medical malpractice claims can be made against medical doctors, hospitals, nurses and other entities controlled by a hospital, such as emergency rooms and pathologists.
DO I HAVE A VIABLE MEDICAL MALPRACTICE CLAIM?
You do not have to be severely hurt to bring about a medical malpractice claim, but for a medical malpractice lawyer to take your case, you must demonstrate a serious claim for your case to be considered.
WHAT DAMAGES MIGHT I BE AWARDED?
Medical malpractice damages are the same as damages for any other personal injury.
WHAT IS THE STATUTE OF LIMITATIONS FOR A MEDICAL MALPRACTICE CASE IN FLORIDA?
The statute of limitations for medical malpractice claims is two years after you knew or should have known that you were suffering from malpractice or up to seven years under certain circumstances. Many times, a person does not know that their inability to recover is due to a standard of care deviation. To find out if you have a case, contact a medical malpractice attorney right away.
CAN I STILL RECOVER DAMAGES IF I SIGNED A CONSENT FORM?
A medical provider cannot “contract away” their liability for malpractice. Even if you signed a form acknowledging the risks, you still have rights.
