Winter Park Medical Malpractice Attorneys
Medical Malpractice occurs when a doctor’s action or inaction falls below the professional standards of “reasonably prudent” care. Malpractice is usually not intentional or malicious. It is simply care that is below standard. In trial, it is up to the jury to decide if the doctor’s care was “reasonably prudent.” Contact our experienced Winter Park medical malpractice attorneys today.
Malpractice and the Law
Florida doctors enjoy many special protections within the law to shield against malpractice lawsuits. Attorneys in Florida don’t accept malpractice claims lightly. Attorneys are required to certify that they have performed a reasonable investigation into a case, and state that they have good reason to make the claim. Later, if a judge determines that the lawyer had no basis to believe a claim exists, the judge may enter sanctions against the attorney. Because of the complexities of the law, legal advice is needed in order to know if a true claim exists. If you believe you’ve received an injury due to medical negligence, you may contact our office for an evaluation of your case.
