Most of us want to believe our doctors, nurses, surgeons, and other medical providers will always keep us safe. Unfortunately, that isn’t always true. These providers make more mistakes than we would like to believe. In fact, according to Johns Hopkins, medical malpractice is the third-leading cause of death in the United States.
Medical malpractice occurs when a doctor, nurse, surgeon, or other medical professional provides treatment that deviates from accepted standards of care within the medical community, and, the deviation results in injuries to the patient. If a doctor, nurse, surgeon, or other medical professional was negligent under Florida law, they may be liable for the damages caused by their negligence.
