South Florida Medical Malpractice Lawyers
Attorneys Zealously Advocate for Clients’ Right to Compensation in Medical Malpractice Cases
Most routine medical procedures and surgeries contain an element of risk—at bare minimum, the risk that the treatment will not succeed is always present. When a known risk becomes reality and the medical professionals involved did everything to help the patient, medical malpractice is not an issue. Despite the fact that you must accept certain risks when seeking out medical treatment, you do not have to accept the results when you receive negligent care that does not follow generally accepted medical standards. Like anyone else, medical professionals are unable to guarantee favorable results based upon their medical care, and, of course, not every bad outcome in the health field will lead to a medical malpractice claim. However, Doctors and medical professionals are human and may make mistakes, but you have the right to hold the responsible parties accountable when their negligence causes you to suffer harm. Medical professionals are required to exercise a duty of care with respect to their patients. When a patient is injured or harmed as a result of the negligent actions of a doctor, nurse, or other healthcare provider, that patient has the right to be compensated for those injuries.
