A Lawyer’s Guidance Through Medical Malpractice Claims

Medical malpractice happens when a medical professional fails to perform their duties, and can result in catastrophic injuries. In the United States, it is one of the leading causes of death. After any form of medical malpractice occurs, you deserve justice for the harm you experienced, and the guidance of a skilled Florida injury attorney can help you receive it.

From our Tampa office of Eaton Law, we provide our clients with comprehensive and committed representation. We are here to help you understand what constitutes medical malpractice and guide you through the process of seeking justice. The first step in any medical malpractice claim is confirming if your injuries qualify for a malpractice claim.

Recognizing Medical Malpractice

Medical malpractice is not simply about receiving a bad result from a medical procedure or treatment. For there to be grounds for a medical malpractice claim, the incident needs to meet the four elements of malpractice:

  1. There was a duty of care that a medical professional owed the patient
  2. The medical professional violated that duty of care
  3. The injuries that violation resulted in
  4. The damages of the resulting injuries

If you believe that you or a loved one was the victim of medical malpractice, we can review the details of your unique situation to confirm if you have a malpractice claim on your hands and what steps come next in holding the reckless or negligent medical professional accountable.

Timeline Of A Medical Malpractice Claim

While our goal as your injury attorney is to minimize the time it takes to resolve these claims, the path to resolving a medical malpractice claim is intricate and can extend over several years. These claims start with an investigation into the incident, which often includes research and collaborating with medical experts to confirm your claim, allowing me to file your lawsuit.

The next steps include pre-trial negotiations, discovery phases and, if necessary, going to trial. Ideally, your claim can be resolved through negotiation to produce full and swift compensation for your injuries, but we are prepared to fight for you in court if necessary. No matter where your claim takes you, we will be by your side, ensuring that your story is heard and your rights are defended every step of the way.
