Sustaining injuries in a medical setting is a stressful and likely painful experience. Working with an attorney gives you the peace of mind that you’re doing everything you can to receive the compensation you need to get back to your life. We want to help you determine what happened in your case and achieve a fair recovery under the law.
Too often, medical care can go wrong. You seek treatment because of a medical problem, and you leave with new and different issues because of a medical mistake.
In Florida, health care professionals have an obligation to deliver competent service. They must make decisions and provide care that’s in line what with a reasonable person would do under the same circumstances. When they don’t behave as a reasonable person should under the same conditions, you may need the help of a medical malpractice lawyer in St. Petersburg to help you receive justice and compensate you for your losses.
Bringing a medical malpractice claim helps you with the damages that you have because of medical malpractice. When you’re the victim of medical malpractice, there’s a good chance that you have additional expenses because of the error. For example, you may need other surgeries or additional medications because of the medical mistake. You may even have long-term complications because of what happened. These complications come at a cost.
The purpose of a medical malpractice claim is to compensate you for the expenses that result from medical negligence and also to compensate you for having to undergo such a harrowing experience. Becoming the victim of medical negligence can be physically as well as emotionally painful. It isn’t easy to learn that someone made a needless mistake that cost you personally and financially. You deserve compensation for both your physical and emotional injuries and losses.
After the event, you may not even know precisely what happened to you. You might just know that something isn’t quite right. Your medical team probably isn’t going to volunteer information about what they did wrong. If you think something may have been wrong with your medical care, it’s important to meet with a lawyer in St. Petersburg. We can help you sort through the evidence and determine if you have a claim for medical malpractice.
You’re not limited to just what the other side tells you when you bring a claim for medical malpractice. Instead, you can demand copies of records. You can demand that your care providers answer questions about the care that you received. You can even work with other medical experts to determine whether the care that you receive is reasonable.
When you work with our professional legal team, we handle all of these things on your behalf. We can review medical reports and get experts involved. Our experts can evaluate the care that you received from your medical providers. The medical professionals who treated you may want to hide information, but we’re committed to uncovering the truth. Florida law allows us to aggressively sort through the evidence and gather the information that we need to bring your claim. That’s what we’re committed to doing to the full extent of the law for every medical malpractice victim that we work with.
Certainly, medical malpractice can occur when a care provider does something on purpose to hurt a patient. Sadly, that’s all too common. But most medical malpractice happens negligently. Negligence means that the person providing care didn’t do everything that they should have done to be careful under the circumstances. Maybe they should have checked two or three times to make sure that you received the right dose of medication. Perhaps they should have asked for another test to diagnose a medical condition correctly.
Most medical malpractice happens when a person who is responsible for your care doesn’t act reasonably under the same circumstances. The standard is based on a professional person with comparable training. Medical professionals have a high obligation to provide care. Your claim may be against an individual health care provider, a health-care facility like a hospital or both individuals and the institutions responsible for your care.
Any medical professional can commit malpractice. Surgeons, medical specialists, and pathologists can all commit malpractice. Nurses, nurse’s aides, surgical techs, and other care providers can also commit malpractice.
Anyone responsible for your care has a duty to act professionally under the same standards as a person with similar training and experience. The legal team at Jack Bernstein, Injury Attorneys can help you determine who may be responsible for medical malpractice in your case.
