Medical Malpractice

In Hollywood, FL, medical malpractice stems from the negligence of a healthcare professional and can lead to severe injury or illness. If you suspect that you’ve endured a failure to diagnose an illness accurately, unnecessary surgical procedures, inaccurate patient history, false or misread lab results, or similar issues, you may be eligible for compensation.

Florida state law imposes a statute of limitations for medical malpractice, necessitating a claim within two years from the incident or two years from the time it should have been discovered with due diligence. The statute allows a maximum of four years from the incident for a claim to be made. Due to this restricted time frame, it’s crucial to take action promptly upon discovering or experiencing the effects of medical malpractice.

Medical malpractice can lead to death, injury, emotional distress, and lost wages, arising from medical, dental, or surgical diagnoses, as well as general healthcare provider care.

Proving medical malpractice can be challenging, so the sooner you engage a Florida medical malpractice attorney upon realizing you may be a victim, the more information you can gather to strengthen your case.

Attorney Garnes is committed to constructing a compelling case that establishes you as the victim of medical malpractice, attributing your injuries to the negligence of your healthcare providers.

If your case is determined to be medical malpractice, potential settlements may cover:

  • Medical Expenses: Hospital stays, medications, exams, tests, physical therapy, and more. Settlements can also encompass medical accessories like crutches and walkers.
  • Lost Wages: Being unable to work due to an accident or injury can result in lost wages. A personal injury settlement can obligate the responsible party to cover lost wages, including future income.
  • Emotional Harm: Victims may be entitled to compensation for emotional distress, pain and suffering, or therapy to address the emotional issues stemming from the incident.
