Florida Medical Malpractice Cases
It’s Not Just Doctors. Not everyone is aware that medical malpractice can also apply to nurses, health care facilities, and others providing health care services, such as nursing homes and even dentists. If a surgeon, doctor, nurse, hospital, or other medical provider acts, or does not act, in a manner that is considered the accepted standard of care, then that provider may be liable for an injured person’s damages.

Although most Florida health care providers do great work, mistakes can be made that have adverse effects on the patient. Sometimes those effects can linger for the rest of their life as well as impact their family and friends. Medical malpractice occurs when an omission or negligent act occurs by a doctor or other type of medical professional resulting in harm to the patient. Medical malpractice laws are designed to protect patients’ rights to pursue compensation if they are injured as the result of negligence.
