What Is Medical Malpractice?

Medical malpractice is the legal term associated with the negligent diagnosis, care and treatment rendered by medical providers such as doctors, nurses, pharmacists and a variety of other medical professionals. Individuals and families suffering loss due to medical malpractice in Florida, may be entitled to financial compensation.

If you believe that a medical provider or hospital has been negligent in providing treatment to you or to a family member, the trial lawyers at Personal Injury Legal Team can help you determine your legal options.

The Facts About Medical Malpractice

At Personal Injury Legal Team, we believe that juries serve a very important social function. Their verdicts provide signals or warnings that certain types of practices will not be tolerated. According to the Rand Institute for Civil Justice, “The jury’s decision in any particular case indicates the potential costs of engaging in behavior similar to the defendant’s.” The New England Journal of Medicine reported in the late 1970’s that replacing the tort system in medical malpractice cases “might well abolish the deterrent signal or distort clinical decision making”. Researchers found that tort cases that assess damages against the negligent doctor send signals to other doctors that discourage future carelessness and reduce future damages.
