If a medical professional in Florida injures you, you have legal rights that allow you to file a claim against the liable insurer or party. However, to receive compensation for your injuries in any Florida medical malpractice case, you must prove that a breach in the medical duty of care occurred.
Shapiro | Delgado has helped medical malpractice injury victims prove their cases by establishing the following four facts:
Fact 1. The medical practitioner held a general duty of care toward you
Fact 2. They breached their medical duty of care
Fact 3. Their breach of medical duty resulted in your accident
Fact 4. Your accident caused your injuries and financial losses
Even if medical professionals injure you, they are not automatically liable for your injuries, pain, and suffering. Instead, you must show that the doctor fell below the prevailing professional standard of care. Our legal team will preserve all admissible, discoverable evidence findings so that we paint a picture of the truth regarding treatment and future outlook from your medical team.
