What You Need to Prove Medical Malpractice in Florida
Every medical malpractice case in Florida must meet a specific set of legal standards to be considered malpractice. For example, you must be able to prove:
- Doctor-patient relationship. To claim medical malpractice, you must first prove you had a doctor-patient relationship with the healthcare professional in question. A medical malpractice attorney can collect this documentation to prove your relationship.
- Injury as a result of treatment. Proving your injury relies heavily on medical documentation you obtained during and after the treatment or procedure that resulted in your injury. If you did not seek medical attention once you realized you were injured, it may be more difficult to make your case.
- A notable deviation from the standard of care. You must prove that your treating physician or healthcare provider acted negligently and did not follow the accepted standard of care for your case and condition, and this deviation resulted in your injury.
