Defining “Medical Negligence”
Negligence refers to a medical professional’s error in judgment. As a general rule, our South Florida medical malpractice lawyers must demonstrate that a doctor failed to follow the generally accepted standard of care, meaning he or she did not act as other reasonable medical professionals would. Medical negligence can take a variety of forms, including:
- a bad decision during surgery
- the use of force during labor and delivery
- prescribing the wrong medication
- failing to administer treatment in a reasonable amount of time
Our Miami medical malpractice attorneys will work around the clock to see to it that someone is held accountable to the victims and their families. Examples of medical malpractice include:
- medication errors
- surgical mistakes
- failure to diagnose cancer
- birth injuries
- emergency room errors
- cosmetic surgery medical malpractice
