What You Need To Know

Statute of Limitations for Florida Medical Malpractice

Time is of the essence if you have been the victim of medical negligence in the state of Florida. Pursuant to section 95.11(4)(b), Florida Statutes, anyone who has suffered personal injuries a the result of medical malpractice must bring the claim within two (2) years of the date that the medical error was, or should have been discovered, but in no event can a claim for medical malpractice be brought more than four (4) years from the date of the incident. If the medical malpractice caused the death of a patient, the claim must be brought within two (2) years of the date of death. If the victim of the medical malpractice was younger than eight years old at the time of the injury, this statute of limitations may not apply.

Because time is limited, it is important that you reach out to your Florida medical malpractice attorney at Bonner Law in a timely fashion as soon as you can. During your initial consultation with your negligence lawyer in Miami at Bonner Law, you’ll gain insight into your rights and how to proceed. Our deep understanding of Florida medical malpractice laws will be put to work for you and your family to ensure you receive the recovery you deserve.

To Prove Your Medical Malpractice Case

If you have been the victim of medical malpractice, there are some key steps to take to help you build a solid case and help ensure that you receive full compensation. A good first step is to gather all the relevant documents, such as:

  • Medical bills
  • Medical Records and test results (blood work, prescriptions, imaging results, etc.)
  • Police or Ambulance Reports, if applicable
  • Dated journal of pain levels and impact event has had on your daily life
  • Pre-event medical history
  • Doctor and health insurance contact details
  • Witness contact details for testimony, if applicable

Once you’ve gathered all the relevant documents, your medical malpractice attorney can get to work for you to recover all the damages that are due to you. Our Miami negligence lawyer at Bonner Law will start by answering two key questions. Firstly, was the standard of care violated by the healthcare provider? Second, was the patient injured as a direct result from that malpractice? During your initial consultation with your attorney at Bonner Law, we will use our medical malpractice expertise to help you determine exactly how to proceed.

Will My Medical Malpractice Case Go To Trial?

The answer depends on a variety of factors. If you have been the victim of medical malpractice, your medical malpractice lawyer in Miami at Bonner Law will work with you to determine what the best course of action is. It may be best to settle out of court or, alternatively, the optimal next step may be to go to trial with your case. No matter which course is taken, the negligence lawyers in Miami at Bonner Law will guide you throughout the entire process with clear communication of the facts as well as a deep understanding of how things work in the Florida legal and medical systems.

If a fair and reasonable solution cannot be achieved, your medical malpractice attorney may recommend that your case be taken to trial. It’s important to understand the burden of proof by a preponderance of the evidence falls onto the plaintiff should a trial be required. During trial, the Plaintiff must prove the case by:

  • Expert medical witnesses;
  • Establishing a breach of the prevailing standard of care;
  • Establishing that the breach caused damages; and
  • Establishing the damages that resulted from the breach

Types of Medical Malpractice Cases

While each medical malpractice case is unique, there are a few common types of cases that occur, including:

  1. Misdiagnosis
  2. Delayed Diagnosis.
  3. Failure to Treat
  4. Surgical Errors
  5. Medication Errors
  6. Birth Injury
  7. Medical Product Liability
  8. Nursing Errors
  9. Hospital Errors
  10. Pharmacy Errors

Doctors and other healthcare professionals are human, and humans occasionally do make mistakes. When those mistakes cause injury, harm or even death, you have a right to be made whole again. Medical Negligence lawyer, Michael P. Bonner will work hard on the behalf of Floridians to represent those who have fallen victim to medical malpractice.

What types of damages can I expect to recover from my medical malpractice case?

As any medical malpractice attorney in Miami will tell you, all Miami cases are different, but there are some parameters that you can expect regarding the types of damages that you might recover. Generally, there are two main types of compensation you can expect to recover in Florida medical malpractice cases classified as economic and non-economic damages.

Economic damages can include past and future medical expenses, loss of wages and loss of future earning capacity. Damages that are classified as non-economic include pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, disability, scarring, and disfigurement as well as mental anguish. In medical malpractice cases that involve the death of a loved one, you may be entitled to wrongful death-related damages. These types of damages include the cost of your loved one’s healthcare expenses before passing away, lost income or support for the lost loved one,as well as funeral-related expenses among other things. And, of course damages for any survivors for pain and suffering and loss of capacity to enjoy life.

How will negligence lawyers in Miami be paid?

In most instances, your Florida medical malpractice attorney will be paid on a contingency basis. This means your malpractice attorney will not get paid unless you recover damages. While each medical malpractice attorney in Miami handles their fee breakdown differently, in most cases there are no upfront costs or out-of-pocket charges but rather an agreed-upon percentage of damages serves as the attorney fees at the end of your case.

The benefits of this kind of fee structure with your negligence lawyers in Miami include:

  1. No delay in getting started toward recovering damages for you and your family.
  2. No risk of your case expiring due to the statute of limitations.
  3. Costs of your medical malpractice suit related to court filings and expert consultations are covered in your contingent relationship.

How do I prepare for an initial free consultation with my medical malpractice attorney?

Your first meeting with medical malpractice lawyer Michael P. Bonner is essential. During the meeting, the main goal of your attorney is to determine whether you have a viable case. This makes it imperative that all facts and details are presented to support this objective. As part of your preparation for this meeting, you should gather all relative documents, contact names and numbers of relevant parties as well as a time outline of events, among other related details.

During this key meeting, your medical malpractice attorney in Miami at Bonner Law will apply more than 30 years experience in handling medical malpractice cases to assess whether you have a viable claim for medical malpractice. You will leave this meeting with a clear understanding of what the next steps are and how to proceed in your medical malpractice claim.

Bonner Law is a highly reputable and respected law firm in the MIA area. I cannot praise them enough about my experience, as it was a pleasant one.Michelle handles the day-to-day operations and well as organizing cases. I found her the most helpful, understanding paralegal around. She is highly organized. My case was a complicated one with 15k pages worth of medical and employment records. She impressed me by knowing the ins and outs of my case better than myself. Anytime I had to replicate documents, she could do so quickly and easily. She is always personable and provides solutions to any issues that arise.Mr. Bonner is an experienced and knowledgeable lawyer. He works both sides of cases and ensured I was prepared as a client. He is easy to talk to and knows how to intervene in cases to benefit clients! I never felt he had “sell me” and respected my wishes. My case was very complicated and it didn’t deter him. Because of him, my case was successful.Overall, I highly suggest seeking out Bonner Law. They are the best around and will do what is right for the client!!

At a time when loss is great, you don't want to think that someone was at fault. You convince yourself that it was nature simply taking place. If it wasn't for Bonner Law taking the wheel and guiding our family through one of the hardest moments in our lives, we would never have discovered what we know to be true today. And while we still mourn, we do so knowing that those responsible were held accountable for their errors. Thank you Bonner Law and their wonderful staff!
