It is a common misconception that medical malpractice is something done by a doctor which must be more severe than a basic act of negligence. However, this is not the case. There are multitudes of situations that cause many of us to seek medical attention on a daily basis. Unfortunately, the comfort that we seek in the professionals who treat us can sometimes leave us in a situation where we are in worse condition than we were prior to the treatment. These worsened conditions, many times, can be life altering and impair us permanently.
A physician has committed medical malpractice when the standard of care used on a patient falls below the standard which the medical world has determined is necessary for that particular treatment, and as a result, the patient receives injuries. It can be ordinary negligence of the physician. Florida statutes require doctors to act like a similar doctor would in a similar situation. Anything that that falls short of this requirement may constitute medical malpractice.
Medical malpractice cases are not limited to conduct of a physician. There are a variety of positions in the medical field which can be liable for a claim of medical malpractice, such as Anesthesiologists, Nurses, Diagnostic Techs, Pharmacists, Rehabilitation Therapists and more.
