When a cosmetic surgeon betrays your trust and fails to provide the care they should, you are left feeling angry, confused, and taken advantage of. At the Cochran Firm South Florida, our medical malpractice attorneys in Ft. Lauderdale and throughout the state of Florida are experienced with building strong cases against negligent doctors to get you the compensation you deserve.
Injury from Cosmetic Surgery Medical Malpractice
Every surgery comes with risks, but you shouldn’t have to suffer because of the negligence of your doctor. You should have every confidence when you step into your doctor’s office that they are qualified and experienced to handle your procedure without surgical mistakes. You should get the results that they promised you without avoidable complications and injury.
Some of the cosmetic surgery injuries our medical malpractice attorneys see include:
- Blood clots
- Brain damage
- Infection and necrosis
- Nerve damage and numbness
- Wrongful death
If you have suffered any of these or other devastating injuries from your cosmetic surgery procedure, you should speak with one of our medical malpractice attorneys about seeking compensation for your medical expenses and recovery.
The statute of limitations for bringing a medical malpractice suit in Florida is usually two years. This means you only have two years to file suit against the doctor who wronged you.
Complex Process for Medical Malpractice Claims
Medical malpractice law in Florida is complicated. One of our medical malpractice attorneys can explain the requirements to prove malpractice and evaluate your case to help you understand if you have a good claim for recovery.
In Florida, before you can even file suit, you must investigate the claim and obtain a medical expert opinion on the extent and cause of your injuries. You must file the expert opinion with your notice of intent to initiate litigation and get a response from the prospective defendant.
For any type of medical malpractice involving negligence, you will be required to attend a mandatory mediation after you file suit.
Our medical malpractice attorneys are knowledgeable of the process, the experts you will need, and the kind of case to build to get you the settlement or jury award that you deserve after suffering at the hands of a surgeon you trusted.
