Medical malpractice is a much more common problem in the United States than is understood by the public. Studies show that as many as 200,000 or more deaths per year are attributed to medical malpractice. This does not even include the negligent acts which result in injury but not death. However, just a small fraction of those negligent acts lead to a medical malpractice claim.
If you or someone you love has been the victim of medical malpractice, you need to consult a Medical Malpractice Attorney as soon as possible to have your claim reviewed. Time is of the essence in Florida with respect to filing a medical malpractice case because the statute of limitations is only 2 years. In other words, if you believe that you, or someone you love, has been injured by a doctor or other health care provider, action must be taken as soon as possible to preserve any potential claim.
