Filing a Medical Malpractice Claim in Tampa and St. Petersburg
Unfortunately, in all but the most obvious mistakes, a doctor will rarely
admit he/she did anything wrong. This means that it is up to you and an
experienced St. Petersburg medical malpractice attorney to prove your
doctor was negligent in your treatment. If you can successfully prove
liability, you stand to be compensated for all of your current and future
medical bills relating to your injury, lost wages, decreased quality of
life, mental anguish, and pain and suffering.
The most common types of medical malpractice suits include:
- Failure to diagnose
- Birth injuries
- Medication errors
- Anesthesia errors
It is important to understand that not every doctor or hospital mistake
will warrant a medical malpractice lawsuit. Sometimes, the doctor practiced
good medicine, but there was an unfortunate outcome. Malpractice lawsuits
can only be filed when a doctor fails to practice integrity and caution
at the level of other doctors. That usually requires other doctors and
experts to examine the case and help establish the doctor in questions
rendered medical care to you was acting below the "standard of care."
