Medical Errors

Leading Florida personal injury firm protects patient’s rights

A leading study by researchers at Johns Hopkins Medicine reported that medical errors take the lives of more than 250,000 Americans each year. Medical errors can also result in injury, surgical complications, misdiagnosis, and improper treatment. If you or a loved one has been injured due to a medical error, you may find protection under personal injury law. The dedicated Florida injury attorneys at Ged Lawyers, LLP advocate on behalf of those who have been hurt due to medical error, holding the at-fault party accountable for your injuries and successfully recovering just compensation for your injuries.

Error due to negligence

Mistakes happen. Sometimes it is as simple as that and there is no real explanation as to why things turned out the way they did. Other times, however, someone is to blame. When an individual has been injured due to medical error, questions arise as to what actions were taken – or not taken – that contributed to the error. Did the medical team follow all safety protocols? Was the patient’s medical history thoroughly reviewed prior to performing a procedure? Was the patient closely monitored for adverse reactions? When an individual or entity was negligent – behaving carelessly, recklessly, or failing to adhere to safety measures, for example – and that negligence caused an injury, the injured party may find protection under personal injury law. Proving negligence is not always straightforward. In many cases, the at-fault party will counter that the injured party is at least somewhat responsible for the medical error.

Don’t delay in filing your claim

Florida’s deadline for filing a personal injury claim in court – known as the statute of limitations – is four years from the time of the accident. This may seem like a long time, but depending upon the seriousness of your injury, you may be consumed with recovery and not paying attention to the calendar. Make sure you do not miss this deadline. If you fail to file your personal injury claim in the Florida courts before the four-year deadline, the courts will not hear your case at all. Furthermore, the opportunity to receive compensation for the injuries you sustained will have been lost. So make a note of this date and be sure to file your personal injury claim on time.
