DeLand Medical Malpractice

You trusted your doctor, nurse, or other healthcare professional. They’re the experts, right? Most of the time you can trust them — after all, the doctor-patient relationship is one of the most sacred there is and most medical professionals take it very seriously. However, this isn’t always the case.

Sometimes, even in DeLand, a doctor or other healthcare professional won’t live up the standards we as society expect from them. Sometimes they’re negligent, making careless mistakes that cause real, sometimes lifelong, harm. A patient could become permanently disabled or even die, because of a doctor’s negligence.

Thankfully, patients who suffer at the hand of negligent medical professionals have the ability to hold these parties accountable. Read on to learn more about medical malpractice and how we can help. If you’re already interested in contacting us about your case, fill out our free, no-risk case evaluation.

What is Medical Malpractice?

Medical malpractice takes on quite a few different forms. The most common example of medical malpractice would be a surgical error — for example, an organ nicked during surgery and the failure to notice and repair it. However, there are several other forms that are also often common in DeLand and around Florida. These include, but are not limited to:

  • Misdiagnosis, as well as the failure to diagnose a medical condition in a timely manner.

  • Prescribing the wrong drugs, causing harmful side effects or overdose.

  • Over-prescribing drugs and helping cause a harmful addiction.

  • Waiting too long or failing to perform a circumstantially necessary medical procedure, such as a C-section.

  • Failing to follow proper medical hygiene procedures, leading to dangerous infections.

  • Failure to monitor patients.

What A DeLand Medical Malpractice Lawyer Can Do for You

Medical malpractice cases are complex, because they involve the fields of law and medicine. So it takes an experienced, well-versed lawyer to step in and fight for victims of medical malpractice. This is even more important in Florida, where state law imposes special procedural requirements on medical malpractice claims intended to discourage claims in general and to encourage pre-trial settlement.

Our attorneys at Morgan & Morgan’s DeLand office are experienced and are also constantly reading up on legal developments pertaining to medical malpractice. Victims of medical malpractice can’t fight negligence themselves — doctors, hospitals, and clinics aren’t typically poised to admit fault and won’t pay a penny without a fight. Luckily, we’re here to fight, too, for you.

If you or someone you love was the victim of medical malpractice, contact us today for a free, no-obligation consultation. We’re ready to help you seek the justice you deserve. This is not a fight you have to engage in alone.
