What is Medical Malpractice?

Medical malpractice is an area of law that holds medical professionals financially responsible for injuries to their patients caused by their negligent care. The law recognizes that not every adverse medical outcome can be avoided even by the most skilled doctor. However, the law requires all medical professionals to adhere to the standards of care required in their field of medicine.

Some situations that may give rise to a medical malpractice claim include:

  • Failure to diagnose
  • Failure to take necessary action
  • Poor followup care
  • Failure to make a referral
  • Unnecessary diagnostic testing
  • Failure to take a proper medical history

Although these situations can be the basis for a medical malpractice claim, the law recognizes that a patient’s treatment will vary from one health care provider to another as new treatment options become available. The law takes into consideration whether a healthcare provider acted in good faith and according to the prevailing standard of care. A victim must prove all the elements of medical malpractice to succeed in a claim. Except in certain circumstances such as where a foreign object like forceps or other surgical tools are found in a person’s body, there is no presumption that a person’s injury was caused by their health care provider. The victim has the burden of proving the cause of their injury.

What Are Some Examples Of Medical Malpractice?

Examples of medical malpractice include, but are not limited to:

  • Hospital negligence
  • Nursing home abuse
  • Pharmacy errors
  • Defective drugs & devices
  • Physician negligence
  • Surgical mistakes
  • Misdiagnosis or failure to diagnose
  • Emergency room errors

How Can I Prove Medical Malpractice?

When a person is injured or dies as a result of their health care provider’s treatment, they must prove the following to succeed in a medical malpractice claim:

That the health care provider’s actions did not meet the prevailing professional standard of care for that health care provider. A health care provider’s duty of care will be measured against what is expected of any reasonably prudent provider at the same level of care, skill, and treatment, under the similar circumstances.

That the injury the victim suffered was not within the reasonably foreseeable results of the treatment they received if it was carried out according to the prevailing professional standard of care by a similar health care provider acting with reasonable care.

Medical malpractice cases can be very complex and often require expert medical testimony to prove the health care provider’s negligence. Zarzaur Law has an on staff medical doctor that works with the firm in preparing your case.

Importance of Hiring A Board Certified Civil Trial Lawyer

Trial lawyers pursue specialized training in client advocacy and have more experience in the courtroom than other attorneys who typically deal with out-of-court settlements. If your case is likely to go to trial or you simply want to be on the safe side, it’s a good idea to seek out a board-certified trial attorney in the practice area of your case; this ensures that you are prepared with a highly experienced representative if the case is taken all the way to court and may even serve as a deterrent for low settlement offers from a defendant that wants to avoid a lengthy and difficult trial process.

Hiring a trial attorney does not necessarily cost more than hiring another attorney. Most personal injury attorneys offer free consultations and work on contingency, which means clients don’t pay unless and until they win their case; this rule of thumb applies to trial lawyers as well as other personal injury lawyers, allowing injured parties and their families to benefit from the strength and experience of a trial attorney without paying exorbitant out-of-pocket costs.

Experience Matters

Trial experience with big jury verdicts matters to the insurance company on the other side of the case, and it should matter to you. If the lawyer handling your case has substantial trial experience, it will matter and affect the value of your case.

However, if, on the other hand, the lawyer handling your case does not have substantial jury trial experience with big verdicts, it will also affect your case. Many larger firms will attract you with a senior lawyer’s credentials and then, once you sign with them, your case will be handled by a lower level lawyer without experience with jury trials and verdicts.

At Zarzaur Law, we only take quality cases so that Joe Zarzaur can be the primary personal injury lawyer. Mr. Zarzaur is a Board Certified Civil Trial Lawyer and has record jury verdicts in both Escambia and Santa Rosa Counties in injury cases. He obtained a 9.3 million dollar verdict from an Escambia County jury and had a 16 million dollar verdict from a Santa Rosa County jury. These were both injury cases that did not involve death. Only about 1% of Florida lawyers are board certified and only a handful of lawyers have the same board certifications as Mr. Zarzaur. The firm also attorneys who are “AV Preemeninent” by Martindale-Hubbell rated lawyers and Super Lawyers®.

If you’ve been the victim of an accident due to another’s carelessness, it’s important that you don’t make any rash decisions. Put yourself in the best possible position to receive the justice you deserve. It is also important to consult with a Board Certified Trial lawyer who has the knowledge and experience to help you. We know accidents can be stressful and want to make the process as easy as possible for you. Call Zarzaur Law, P.A. today at (855) Hire-Joe, or by requesting a free case review through our website.
