Medical Malpractice

Medical MalpracticeThe vast majority of Florida's healthcare professionals are competent and caring people. There are, however, some physicians, nurses and hospitals that have demonstrated a tendency to be careless in the care and treatment of their patients. When this occurs, the results for the patient can be catastrophic.

In order to bring a legal suit against a healthcare provider in the state of Florida, the injured patient must first engage in what is commonly known as the "pre-suit" process. This process is often time consuming and expensive and involves collecting all of the patient's relevant medical and hospital records and presenting those records for review to qualified healthcare specialists. Before any case can be brought against a healthcare provider the experts reviewing the patient's records must conclude that there are grounds for a good faith belief that there was negligence in the care and treatment of the patient which caused the patient harm.

In order to prevail at trial, the patient bears the burden of proving that the alleged actions of the healthcare provider represented a "breach of the prevailing professional standard of care for that healthcare provider". Proving that a standard of care was breached requires expert testimony and, for that reason, medical negligence trials are often referred to as a "battle of the experts".

If you or a family member have been injured…or lost a loved one…because of suspected medical negligence it is important to investigate the claim promptly. The statute of limitation for medical negligence cases is much shorter than for the typical accident and injury case. Regrettably, many patients wait too long to investigate their claim only to find out that the time for bringing the claim has expired and their claim is barred by the Florida statute of limitations.

Because of the enormous commitment of time and financial resources to successfully prosecute a medical negligence claim, Mr. Cunningham is only able to consider cases involving catastrophic injury or death. If you, a family member or loved one believe you may be the victim of medical negligence please call for an appointment to discuss you legal rights.
