Recent studies by the Institute of Medicine of the National Academy of Sciences reveal that medical malpractice is a serious problem facing America’s healthcare system. It is estimated that up to 98,000 people may be killed in hospitals alone as a result of medical malpractice every year! This number is frightening to the millions of people who count on hospitals to provide them with the care they cannot provide themselves.
Medical malpractice lawsuits are complex legal endeavors that demand representation by an experienced South Florida medical malpractice lawyer. To bring a successful claim against a health care provider, you must be able to prove that a person or institution was responsible for your care, that they acted negligently or incompetently and that their action or inaction caused injury or death that resulted in damages. Damages are generally defined as monetary compensation for things like medical expenses, loss of income and pain and suffering. In some instances, victims may be able to sue for punitive damages if their medical care was grossly negligent or intentionally damaging.
Medical malpractice lawsuits can be difficult to prove. They demand an attorney with a keen eye and deep understanding of the healthcare system. Bringing a successful medical malpractice lawsuit against a healthcare provider often demands expert testimony from other medical practitioners. This can be difficult to obtain as healthcare professionals, such as doctors, dentists and psychiatrists, are generally not quick to testify against someone in their profession. Hiring a medical negligence attorney in Miami who has connections with healthcare industry professionals is a good idea.
