St. Petersburg Medical Malpractice Attorney

Tampa Medical Negligence Lawyer

When you or a loved one has to go to the hospital or other medical facility for treatment, the doctors, nurses and medical professionals treating you have a duty to use a "reasonable standard of care". Unfortunately, medical professionals sometimes fail to meet this duty. When this happens, severe injuries and even death can result. A study by Harvard's Institute of Medicine, entitled To Err Is Human: Building a Safer Health System, estimated that as many as 98,000 Americans died each year due to preventable medical errors.

At the law firm of Reeder & Nussbaum, P.A., in St. Petersburg, our attorneys help victims of medical malpractice receive compensation for medical expenses, lost income and pain and suffering.

If you believe that you have suffered a serious injury as the result of medical malpractice at a clinic, hospital or other facility in Florida, contact us to speak about your situation.

Causes of Medical Malpractice

In the state of Florida, all potential malpractice claims must be evaluated and affirmed by a medical expert. We work closely with medical professionals in malpractice cases to fully understand our clients' injuries and the potential causes of those injuries.

Acts of medical malpractice may include:

Doctors are not the only medical professionals who may perform acts of malpractice. Nurses, interns, pharmacists, dentists and other staff can all be found liable if they breach their duty to their patient.

Statute of Limitations in Florida Medical Malpractice Cases

In Florida, medical malpractice claims must be brought within two years of when the injured person knew or should have known about their injury. And in most cases, an injured person is barred from bringing a medical malpractice suit after four years of the injury. There are exceptions to these laws, and a consultation with a medical malpractice lawyer can provide information as to the status of your potential claim.

Malpractice cases are often complex, requiring the use of expert testimony. Because of these complexities, we carefully scrutinize every potential medical malpractice case. While we may not accept every potential medical malpractice case, we will provide each potential client with an honest assessment of their case.
