How Birth Injury and Medical Malpractice Compensation Works.
Compensation in Florida is a little tricky for medical malpractice. The law states that there should be a limit to what you are allowed to get when you bring a claim against a medical professional. These limitations only apply to compensation for things that are non-economic damages which include mental anguish, pain and suffering, stress, scarring and disfigurement, and loss of companionship. You will not see a cap for damages that are tactile and concrete such as your medical bills, lost wages, and treatments all past and future. There are more complicated aspects to these caps.
Choosing a Birth Injury Lawyer.
Florida has created a number of protections for health care providers that do not exist for any other aspect of the law. If there is a misstep early in the case, it can be fatal to your case. This is why it’s so important to hire a truly seasoned and experienced medical malpractice lawyer. We hold the largest verdict in the nation for a medical malpractice case in the year 2012 for a reason. In these videos, Tom and Eric explain more about what to look for when selecting a medical malpractice lawyer, and how the foundation of our firm helps us continuously see success for our clients.
