When you go to a hospital or clinic, you trust the health care professionals and medical facility to provide you with comprehensive care and treatment. In an ideal world, doctors and nurses will identify symptoms, perform procedures, and administer medicine with precision and accuracy every time.
Unfortunately, these medical professionals aren't immune to making mistakes. In the event of medical malpractice, a physician, nurse, or another medical professional makes a medical error that causes a patient to suffer an injury, ailment, or death.
Many professionals guilty of malpractice will try to conceal their emergency room and hospital errors. Even if a hospital has a patient who has suffered severe injuries, it'll do everything in its power to prevent the victim from filing a claim with their insurance company. When a hospital is successful, its doctors are often not held liable for their actions.
Though not all medical negligence nor negative outcome is malpractice, if a logical and cautious medical professional would not have performed similarly given the situation, they could be guilty of malpractice. When it is malpractice however, a patient might be able to demand damages using the civil system.

Our Florida Medical Negligence Attorneys Will Fight Tirelessly to Get You the Compensation you Deserve
Florida medical malpractice claims are lengthy ordeals. To win them, you'll need a great deal of both legal and medical knowledge. The typical personal injury attorney often won't possess the expertise necessary to handle such cases. If you were harmed at the hands of a doctor or hospital, you'll need an experienced Florida medical malpractice lawyer to have the best chance of winning your case.
Unfortunately, state laws tend to favor physicians and hospitals when it comes to settling negligence cases. But our team works tirelessly to demonstrate fault of the healthcare provider to the courts and rationalize the requested compensation you should receive.
Our team takes a fair but aggressive approach when representing clients and our past successes have made the medical community recognize our law firm as tough and tenacious. They know if the Hastings Law Firm is handling a case, it's serious. This reputation results in many defendants and their insurance companies offering to settle out of court to avoid the expenses associated with going to court and possibly losing their lawsuit.
One key concept our attorneys implement is the difference between economic and non-economic damages. The state of FL doesn't limit the monetary payout for economic damages, so our team will work to help you receive the highest amount possible given your circumstances. There is a limit on non-economic damages that a patient can pursue, but our lawyers will help you pursue the maximum amount to ensure you can recover from your hardships.
