Recent changes to Florida’s medical malpractice law, commonly known as “tort reform,” have put victims of medical malpractice at a substantial disadvantage. If you try to take on a prominent malpractice insurance lawyer yourself, you may wind up having your legitimate malpractice case thrown out on a technicality.
Did you or a loved one suffer a severe injury caused by the carelessness or negligence of a medical professional in Florida? A Florida medical malpractice attorney at Callejo Law can help. If you try to make your medical malpractice claim independently, you may even have a valid claim denied on a procedural technicality.
There is a time limit for filing your medical malpractice claim known as the “statute of limitations.” In Florida, the statute of limitations for medical malpractice is two years. Therefore, you have two years, starting from the date of the injury or the date you reasonably determined you were injured, to file your medical malpractice claim. If you miss this deadline, your legitimate claim will be time-barred.
Filing a medical malpractice claim in Florida is complicated. To successfully file your claim, you’ll need the help of an experienced Florida medical malpractice attorney at Callejo Law. We understand the law and know how to show the four elements required:
Dentists may also be sued for dental malpractice. Like medical professionals, dentists must comply with the established standards of care when treating patients. A dentist’s duty of care is the level of care that would be administered by another dentist’s degree of skill, care, and diligence under similar circumstances.
Essentially, dental malpractice is simply another form of medical malpractice with the same four elements. However, dentists are often more willing to help you establish a breach of duty because the competition is more intense. Dentists typically run their small shops and are not part of a vast hospital system and see the value of damage to another small shop that is part of their competition.
