Do I Have a Valid Medical Malpractice Claim?

Doctors are human; they sometimes make mistakes. While some mistakes are relatively minor and cause no real harm, others can be disastrous and result in serious injury or even death to a patient. When a doctor’s error is in such a way that it violates the standard of care owed to their patients, they may be held civilly liable for medical malpractice. In order for negligence to become “actionable,” or have all the necessary elements to warrant a valid legal claim, several elements must exist.

  1. The doctor, nurse, or other medical professional owed a duty to the patient.
  2. The duty to the patient was breached.
  3. The breach of duty caused the patient harm.

The first element addresses whether or not a physician owes a patient a duty of care. Generally speaking, doctors do not owe a duty of care unless a doctor-patient relationship is established. In other words, the patient must show that they came to the doctor for care or the doctor voluntarily came to the patient’s aid. Once a doctor-patient relationship is established, the physician becomes liable for any injury that should result from any negligent or careless actions during their care.

In regards to the second element, a person may not sue for malpractice simply because they are unhappy with the results of their treatment. A doctor must have acted in a manner that they violated the standard of care, such as failing to act reasonably skillful or careful, or in a manner that a competent doctor would have acted in the same situation. Likewise, a patient does not have a case if no real harm was caused as a result of their doctor’s negligence. Examples of real harm include physical pain, mental anguish, additional medical expenses, reduced quality of life, or reduced earning capacity.

Common Causes of Medical Malpractice

Inevitably, in just about every medical malpractice case, the defendant will begin to stop trying to dodge responsibility altogether and instead start offering up reasons as to why the negligence occurred. Make no mistake: there is no reason that they can provide that should be viewed as excusable. Patients go to medical practitioners because they need help for a physical or mental ailment. When something so dire or dangerous is at play, there must be no amount of negligence whatsoever.

Medical malpractice cases and injuries may be sourced to:

  1. Exhaustion: Nurses and doctors work extremely long shifts, sometimes more than 24 hours in a row. There is a clear issue in management when anyone of any profession needs to work that long. Still, being tired cannot be allowed to cause harm to innocent patients.
  2. Miscommunication: Everyone in a hospital or care facility is an important part of the overall team. From clerks at the front desk to surgeons in the operating room, clear and concise communication at every step along the way of a patient's care is crucial.
  3. Prescription errors: Medications and treatments a patient is told to use or follow after they leave the hospital or facility cannot be overlooked and must be prescribed exactly. In some ways, prescription errors are more dangerous than any other form of medical malpractice since the patient is no longer under the direct observation of medical staff.

    "Lori kept in contact, showed empathy, & was straightforward with all detail!"
    When I’ve reached the right people..ur lucky to be in contact with them!! Although they couldn’t help me with my case. Leading up to the decision Lori kept in contact, showed empathy, and was straightforward with all detail! Lori told me more than my own doctors or the hospital did. I have closure because of HER! So I still won! My case was complicated to move forward due to other reasons..but she ain’t never let me down when speaking to her! She speaks to you as if she knew you forever! I appreciate this firm so much because before they say NO..they try, they listen, and they put work in!!! Thank you guys so much for everything!

    "I so appreciate their kindness, genuine compassion, & 'got my back' attitude."
    From the first phone conversation with Lori, to the first time meeting with David and Jeff, all the way through and to the conclusion of my case, I felt as if these people truly cared about what happened to me. They didn’t just see a potential “case”. They were upset with my situation. They wanted to help. Through the years that this whole process takes, I have gotten to know them a bit better, and they have gotten to know me. I now consider them less “my legal team”, and more a part of my extended family, whether they realize it, or like it, or not. I so appreciate their kindness, genuine compassion, and “got my back” attitude. I hope you are never in a situation to need these folks, but if you ever are, I highly recommend talking to them and seeing if it’s a right fit for all.

    "Jeff & David are very compassionate, kind & won't let you down."
    I never thought that anything would ever happen to me that would lead me to post a review about this law office. Unfortunately, I was wrong and what happened was completely unimaginable so much so that police didn’t believe it at first. I was so confused and lost because it seemed that no one believed me. I googled malpractice in Florida and this was one of the offices that popped up. I called and spoke with Lori, the paralegal, and told her everything she believed me and Jeff and David did too. Due to what happened this wasn’t going to just be a civil lawsuit but a criminal one as well. They were a huge help in working with the police to get items that would prove my criminal case and would lead to felony arrest and jail time. They were there to talk to me all throughout the criminal case. Especially, Lori she truly cared and when I was all alone feeling that I wasn’t strong enough to get through this she was always there with good and caring advice. I was with this law firm for the past 3 years and Jeff and David are very compassionate and kind. From the attorneys to the paralegal they worked very hard and did so much that they have changed my life. If you are looking for an attorney office with experienced, knowledgeable, and compassionate staff. I promise they won’t let you down.
