Safety laws and regulations exist to protect us from harm. When big businesses, negligent medical professionals, or individuals breach these safety regulations, this puts the community at risk. It's time for consumers to stand up to negligent businesses and individuals and hold them responsible for their actions.
Whether you or a loved one has been hurt by a dangerous drug, defective medical products, or any other form of medical malpractice, David C. Rash and Jeff D. Mueller are ready to protect you. Our Weston medical malpractice attorneys have taken on large corporations and successfully held wrongdoers responsible for their failures to follow basic laws.
What Is Medical Malpractice?
Medical malpractice occurs when a medical professional injures a patient by deviating from professional standard of behavior. Whether through negligence, or an act of omission, these medical professions can be held liable. Elements of a claim include:
- A doctor-patient relationship
- Proof the negligence caused an injury
- Proof the injury caused damages
Weston Medical Malpractice Statute of Limitations
When we encourage you to not hesitate, we do not exaggerate. Weston has some of the strictest statutes of limitations for medical malpractice cases in the country. If you believe that a medical practitioner has caused you harm due to negligence or wrongdoing, you only have two years from when the injury occurred or from when you should have known about it to file a lawsuit against them.
If the harm of the malpractice is not readily known, such as in a lingering illness or infection, you may file beyond the two-year statute of limitation but not if four years have passed since the original occurrence. Additionally, even if fraud was intentionally used to hide the consequences of medical malpractice from you, the patient, the statute of limitations is just seven years. You must reach out to a medical attorney in Weston quickly to ensure that your rights are not forgotten.

Our malpractice lawyers in Weston accept all forms of medical malpractice cases in Weston. Medical practitioners are respected and revered for helping people recover from the worst of wounds or ailments, but they still must be held to the highest of standards. When someone's health is on the line, there must be no allowance of negligence, or else a devastating injury or complication can arise in virtually any situation.
What is Informed Consent?
Given that most medical procedures and treatments come with some risks, it is the responsibility of every doctor to provide their patients with information regarding the proposed treatment or procedure so a patient can make an informed decision about how they would like to proceed. This is called informed consent.
Without this essential information, a patient cannot truly make an informed decision. To obtain a patient’s informed consent, a doctor would generally require them to sign a consent form that states the risks associated with the procedure. However, a patient’s signature alone does not prove informed consent. It's crucial that a doctor fully discuss the procedure, its risks with the patient and for the patient to understand. Informed consent is not required in some cases.
These situations include:
- Medical emergencies
- Emotionally fragile patients
We Protect Your Future
Medical malpractice often causes more harm than the original condition that brought a patient to their doctor or clinic in the first place. With one critical mistake, such as an unnecessary surgery or unaddressed birth injury, the patient and their loved ones may suffer the consequences for years to come, if not permanently. When you seek compensation through a lawsuit with our Weston medical malpractice lawyers’ help, all avenues will be thoroughly reviewed to make certain that you get the money you need for today, tomorrow, and beyond. David Rash and Jeff Mueller are both committed to helping clients pave a way to a better future.
Rewarded compensation should provide for:
- Initial medical costs
- Lifetime rehabilitation or treatments
- Lost wages or reduced earning potential
- Reduced standard of living (emotional suffering)
