It's time for consumers to stand up to negligent businesses and individuals, and hold them responsible for their actions.

Medical Malpractice Statute of Limitations in Florida

When we encourage you to not hesitate, we do not exaggerate. Florida State has some of the strictest statutes of limitations for medical malpractice cases in the country. If you believe that a medical practitioner has caused you harm due to negligence or wrongdoing, you only have two years from when the injury occurred or from when you should have known about it to file a lawsuit against them. Waiting beyond the statute of limitations permits the court to automatically throw out your case, no matter how much evidence you may have gathered against the liable party.

If the harm of the malpractice is not readily known, such as in a lingering illness or infection, you may file beyond the two year statute of limitation but not if four years have passed since the original occurrence. Additionally, even if fraud was intentionally used to hide the consequences of medical malpractice from you, the patient, the statute of limitations is just seven years. You must reach out to a medical attorney in Florida quickly to ensure that your rights are not forgotten.

We Believe in Justice for All

We accept all forms of medical malpractice cases in Florida. Medical practitioners are respected and revered for helping people recover from the worst of wounds or ailments, but they still must be held to the highest of standards. When someone's health is on the line, there must be no allowance of negligence, or else a devastating injury or complication can arise in virtually any situation.

Some of the most common forms of medical malpractice in Florida are:

  • Misdiagnosis: Patients depend on their doctor to tell them what is wrong when the cause is not clear. Failing to diagnose an issue, or diagnosing it as another condition altogether, can be incredibly dangerous, exposes patients to incorrect remedies, and is the root of many malpractice cases.
  • Retained surgical items: A negligent surgeon may actually leave surgical instruments, such as gauze or temporary stitching, inside a patient. If the foreign object comes loose, the patient may experience dangerous side effects.
  • Hospital acquired infections: It is estimated that one-in-five patients will become infected with a dangerous illness or disease while staying at a hospital for other health issues. When proper procedures are followed and patient safety is kept in focus, there is no such thing as an unavoidable infection.
  • Anesthesia errors: Anesthesia used to put a patient to sleep before a surgery is useful but inarguably dangerous. It is so hazardous when given in the wrong dosage, an anesthesiologist must administer the anesthesia to ensure no side effects occur, such as hypothermia, paralysis, or death.
  • Medication allergies: There is no medication that is entirely harmless to absolutely everyone. Doctors and pharmacists must identify potential allergic reactions in patients before allowing them to take a drug or dosage, or else they risk life-threatening allergic reactions.

Protecting Your Future

Medical malpractice often causes more harm than the original condition that brought a patient to their doctor or clinic in the first place. With one critical mistake, such as an unnecessary surgery or unaddressed birth injury, the patient and their loved ones may suffer the consequences for years to come, if not permanently. When you seek compensation through a lawsuit with our Florida medical malpractice lawyer's help, all avenues will be thoroughly reviewed to make certain that you get the money you need for today, tomorrow, and beyond.

Rewarded compensation should provide for:

  • Initial medical costs
  • Lifetime rehabilitation or treatments
  • Lost wages or reduced earning potential
  • Reduced standard of living (emotional suffering)
