In the United States, we trust our doctors and medical personnel to take care of us in our times of greatest need. Whether it is an ambulance ride following an automobile accident, an emergency surgery, an elective cosmetic surgery, or a routine check-up, doctors are expected to use their best judgment and the skills they have gained through years of schooling and practice to treat our medical ailments and care for us and our loved ones.
Unfortunately, in the course of this medical treatment, sometimes doctors make mistakes or outright fail in their duty to care for us. You may have heard of doctors amputating the wrong foot of a patient or leaving medical instrumentation inside a surgery patient. When this kind of negligence happens, it is called medical malpractice. Victims of medical malpractice in Florida have a right to be compensated.
Although many people think that medical malpractice is rare, statistics show that surgical error deaths are the third-leading cause of death in the United States and at least 250,000 people each year die due to medical errors. Medical malpractice claims include, but are not limited to, errors during surgery, delivering babies, diagnosing cancer, and treating common medical ailments. The largest recorded payout for a medical malpractice claim happened in Florida, when a man who suffered a misdiagnosis of stroke symptoms was awarded $216.7 million in compensation by a jury. While it is hard for a patient or victim of medical negligence to know whether or not the doctor used reasonable care in his or her medical treatment, the attorneys at McCulloch Law, P.A. can investigate your malpractice claim and determine what the doctor could have done or didn’t do that would have changed the medical outcome. Medical malpractice can result in serious lifelong medical complications and even death.
