When an injury results from medical malpractice, our Tampa Florida attorneys may be able to file a lawsuit against the doctor, nurse, hospital, or healthcare provider who was negligent in causing you harm. Medical malpractice occurs when treatment by a health care provider falls below the accepted standard of care in the medical community and leads to the injury or death of a patient. In general, if a healthcare provider in Florida fails to act where others with similar training would have, they may be liable for any resulting damages.
Medical malpractice lawsuits differ from other personal injury cases because they involve two intertwining areas of expertise: law and medicine. These cases are inherently complex and require the attention and skill of an attorney who is well-versed in both of these areas. The attorney you choose should:
- Have a firm understanding of medicine;
- Be able to decipher medical documents;
- Know which experts to consult;
- Know which questions to ask; and
- Be able to anticipate the tactics of the defendant.
