What Is Required For A Medical Malpractice Lawsuit?

In order to bring a medical malpractice case in Florida, you have to be able to prove that the doctor or the hospital fell below the standard of care. What does that mean? That means the doctors established what is a reasonable standard of care for medical practice.

The only way to pursue that case is to get the medical records. Then you have to find an expert who’s willing to sign an affidavit that the doctor fell below acceptable standards. You can’t file a lawsuit until you go through a pre-suit notice process in Florida. That’s all very complicated. Only an attorney who knows what he’s doing can help you through that process.
