How Do You Prove Medical Negligence in Florida?

In the United States of America, we have access to some of the best medical care if not  the best medical care in the world. With that said, human beings practice medicine and  as we all know human beings make mistakes. When that happens in a medical context,  people can either get injured or killed. Unfortunately, we see that happen all the time and  most commonly that happens when a medical provider violates or falls below the medical  standard of care. When a medical provider violates the standard of care or falls below  what science and medicine has determined to be a reasonable standard of medical care,  the injured party has a right to bring a medical malpractice claim against the medical  provider. If you suffered harm as a patient after being treated by a health care provider,  you may be able to seek compensation for your losses through a medical malpractice  claim. In this blog post, we will discuss medical malpractice and how to prove medical  negligence in Florida.

What is medical malpractice?  

Medical malpractice is the failure to exercise the reasonable degree of care when  providing medical care. Of course, it is important to differentiate this from a case with a  bad outcome. For instance, sometimes medical procedures don’t work out the way one  would like. Sometimes, even the best surgeon in the world or the best nurse could not  have prevented the outcome. Those cases are not medical malpractice. Instead, medical  malpractice is about the failure to exercise that reasonable degree of care and skill that  you would expect from a medical professional. In a medical malpractice claim in Florida,  the plaintiff has the burden to show that the medical provider’s actions constitute a breach  of the professional standard of care. Evidence is central to establishing your case as a  victim. Therefore, hiring a medical malpractice attorney is so important. To ensure you  get the top monetary damages available by law, your attorney will rely on one or more of  the following types of evidence. 

Your Medical Records: medical records are very important evidence in any medical  malpractice case. This is because they tell the whole story about the medical care you  received related to the current injury-causing incident and your past medical history.  

Deposition Testimony: Where your medical records may be lacking in some respect,  it’s possible to get essential details by deposing the health care provider who treated you.  During this session, your attorney poses questions to the physician to pinpoint the nature  of the medical error that led to your injuries.  

Expert Testimony: To prove that your doctor departed from the accepted medical  standard of care, your lawyer will typically need to consult with and/or rely on testimony  from another health care provider. Input from medical experts is important to explaining  how and why your own physician’s actions didn’t comply with the standard of care.
