Broward County Medical Malpractice Lawyer | Fighting for Your Rights
Medical malpractice occurs when a health care provider, such as a doctor, nurse, or another medical professional, fails to deliver proper care. When an injury or deteriorated health condition occurs through negligence or by the omission of a crucial action, this can be the basis for a medical malpractice claim.
Medical malpractice can be the result of diagnostic errors, treatment errors, issues in providing the proper follow-up care, or issues managing one’s health. Often, a patient’s health deteriorates due to human error that stemmed from poor oversight or plain carelessness. In the worst of scenarios, a patient can lose his life due to the lack of proper care. When one’s quality of life considerably deteriorates or a life is lost, it is especially important to seek justice. You can depend on an experienced Broward County personal injury attorney here at The Finizio Law Group, P.A. to walk you through the claims process.
Unfortunately, medical errors have risen to the third leading cause of death behind heart disease and cancer. While doctors and care providers don’t intend to cause harm, mistakes are made on a daily basis. Sometimes, these mistakes can drastically affect a person’s health. With the help of our attorneys, it may be possible to file a lawsuit against the doctor, nurse, hospital, or another healthcare provider whose negligence has caused deteriorated health conditions or the death of a loved one.

Statute of Limitations for Medical Malpractice Claims in Florida
The statute of limitations in Florida is just two years for a medical malpractice claim. In general, this means that you have just two years from the date that the malpractice was committed to file a warning to the doctor or hospital you intend to sue, not two years from when the injury resulted in deteriorated health or death. However, the actual amount of time you have depends on your specific circumstance.
