What is Medical Malpractice?

Medical malpractice is defined as:

“An act or omission (failure to act) by a medical professional that deviates from the accepted medical standard of care.”

Additionally, the medical professional’s deviation must have caused an injury in order to be considered a legitimate medical malpractice case. Medical professional can be held liable for medical malpractice if they fail to properly perform the duties they are reasonably expected to perform as a qualified physician, and if their error results in injury to the patient.

The most common medical malpractice cases involve the following:

  • Misdiagnosis of a serious condition or failure to diagnose
  • Injuries occurring during childbirth or prenatal care
  • A doctor prescribing the wrong medication
  • Errors during surgery
  • Anesthesia errors

Statute of Limitations

The statute of limitations is a legal term for how long an individual has to file a claim against someone else before the claim will be discounted. In Florida, you must file a medical malpractice claim within two years after discovering your injury (or after the time that should have become aware of the injury), but no longer than four years after the medical malpractice took place.

Therefore, it is important to act quickly if you suspect that malpractice may have taken place. Our team can help you investigate the circumstances and help determine if you have a claim.

The two exceptions to the statute rules are as follows:

  • If the medical professional responsible for your injury intentionally and fraudulently concealed the malpractice from you, the statute of limitations will extend to seven years from the time the malpractice occurred.
  • If the injured patient was a child, the four-year statute does not apply prior to the child’s eighth birthday.

Keep in mind that with both of these exceptions, you will still only have two-years to file the claim after discovering the injury. The extended deadlines provide more time for you to discover that the malpractice took place, as oftentimes the effects of medical error take time to become manifest.
