Protecting the Rights of Patients: Fort Myers Medical Malpractice Attorney
Medical malpractice is the failure of a health care provider to render medical care according to reasonably accepted medical standards in Florida. In other words, a medical provider does something that is not within acceptable medical practice, or fails to do something necessary for the patient’s good care.
TYPES OF MEDICAL PROVIDERS WHO COULD BE NEGLIGENT
Florida medical malpractice law permits a patient or his family to file suit against any of the following negligent healthcare providers:
- Medical Technicians
- Other professional medical or hospital staff
FLORIDA MEDICAL MALPRACTICE LEGAL RIGHTS
Under Florida medical malpractice law, when a patient is injured due to medical negligence, the patient may bring suit. If the injuries are severe and disabling, members of the patient’s family (spouse, children, or parents) may also have a claim.
WRONGFUL DEATH IN FLORIDA
When someone dies as a result of medical malpractice, the patient’s family can file suit under the Florida Wrongful Death Statute. Tragically, Florida Medical Malpractice law prohibits parents from suing due to the medical malpractice death of a child if that child is over 25 years old. Likewise, a child may bring a claim for the loss of a parent only if the child is 25 years old or younger.
