        What is Medical Malpractice?

        After suffering harm at the hands of a medical professional, you might be wondering whether or not you can file a medical malpractice case. You’ve likely never had to do this before and aren’t sure what it even means to have a case against a medical practitioner. If you have suffered at the hands of a medical care practitioner and you believe that it was because of something that they did wrong, then you likely have a medical malpractice case. Here are some examples to give you a clearer idea of what constitutes a medical malpractice case.

        If you have been prescribed a certain medication— say thyroid medication for a number of years— and you go to your pharmacy to get a refill and, without your knowledge, the pharmacist gives you the wrong pills, you might be able to file a claim. That’s because not only are you not receiving the medication that you need for your thyroid but perhaps you are accidentally taking something that has a host of unwanted side effects. As a result, you now are suffering not only the effects of missing out on your necessary medication, but also from the effects of the medicine that you should not be taking. We would be bringing a case against the pharmacy for this malpractice for pharmaceutical error.

        Let’s say that perhaps you showed up to the emergency room complaining about chest pains and having shortness of breath. If they send you home with a diagnosis that says you were having an anxiety attack or something relatively minor but you end up having a heart attack and needing intensive treatment to survive it, then we can file a claim for medical malpractice because of their failure to diagnose. This is particularly common with women because their cardiac symptoms tend to be believed less and don’t align with male heart attack symptoms. 

        When we file a claim, it is either because you had a diagnosis that was delayed or missed, had an error during surgery, a pharmaceutical error, a medical product defective issue or a birth injury.

        The trauma that you suffer after having been a victim of medical malpractice can devastate your life in the worst of cases. The only way to know for sure whether or not your harm that you’ve suffered is in fact a medical malpractice case is to reach out to our Orlando medical malpractice lawyers right away so we can look at the case details and tell you whether or not you should be pursuing legal action.

        We are prepared to take on even the most challenging of cases to provide you with the legal representation that you need most in this very troubling moment of your life. Call and set up your free consultation today.

        How Long You Have to File

        When you are thinking about bringing a medical malpractice case, we want you to act urgently. It’s important that you reach out to our Orlando medical malpractice lawyers right away because we have to adhere to the Florida statute of limitations. This is a hard and fast one and if you miss the statute of limitations, then you will be barred from receiving compensation.

        In Florida, the amount of time you have between the date that you discovered you are a victim of medical malpractice and the date after which you are going to be barred from receiving compensation is four years. Because it is sometimes difficult to realize you have been the victim of medical malpractice, they do give you time to discover your injury. If you are in that type of situation, the date that you discover you are a victim of medical malpractice is the date on which the statute of limitation starts.

        The other aspects in which you need to act urgently after you’ve been involved in a medical malpractice case is not only reaching out to our lawyers right away, but also getting the care that you need to recover from the harm and damages you had to suffer. We do understand that it can feel very counterintuitive to return to a doctor when a doctor is the reason you are in the pain that you are in today; however, it’s very important that you do so for your own well-being.

        We also strongly advise against giving the insurance company that represents the liable party any sort of statement about what happened. Insurance companies are notoriously greedy and they will use any excuse they can to reduce what they are going to give you. By speaking to them about the incident you are becoming vulnerable to them and their tactics. Do not give them the upper hand. Let us speak to them on your behalf.

        Mistakes to Avoid After a Medical Malpractice Case

        Orlando Claims Process for Medical Malpractice

        We want to emphasize the fact that you need to make the right choices in this time period. When you pursue justice for your medical malpractice case, you are doing so under the knowledge that you get one shot at it. You don’t get to settle this case and then later go and ask for a different result. This is a one-shot trial and the results that you end up with are going to be the ones that you have to live with. Knowing that, we hope you go into the selection process of finding a medical malpractice attorney carefully. You want your Orlando medical malpractice lawyers to have a track record of success handling these types of cases. You also want to be able to trust them that they are going to prepare your case well. If we end up needing to go to trial, you don’t want your lawyer to be surprised by this and not prepared to succeed.

        Having a lawyer fighting for your rights more often than not ensures that the results are going to be fuller and fairer than they would if you tried to do this by yourself. They are the ones who are going to be able to foresee any issues and prepare for them accordingly.

        The justice that we seek is going to be money damages. This money damages are meant to help you return to the life that you lived prior to your medical malpractice. When you file this case, you are bringing it against a liable party but that does not mean the doctor is going to be shelling out your compensation for you out-of-pocket. Their insurance company is going to be the one to fulfill your financial award. Keep in mind that dealing with an insurance company means dealing with a company that wants to make a profit and wants to reduce what you will get. We fight for you to receive compensation for any and all financial losses that you’ve had to suffer, as well as any physical, mental or emotional damages you’ve had to face.

        You might need extensive treatment to recover from your medical malpractice. You might need psychiatric intervention if you suffer anxiety or post-traumatic stress disorder. We want you to be able to receive all of the care you need while you’re waiting for the results of your case, as we’d like you to reach a maximum medical recovery. Not only are you taking care of yourself when you do this, but you are also helping us better understand how much this accident has affected your life negatively. When we have this knowledge, we can better ensure that we are fighting for the fullest possible result we can get.

        Any financial loss that you have is completely relevant and should be reflected in the end results. If you needed to miss work to recover, we want to recover those lost wages. If you can no longer return to the same type of work that you used to do before this, then we want to make sure that you are set up after this case resolves so you don’t have to worry about your lost earning capacity. We fight tirelessly for this justice.

        “In October 2015, My husband was a passenger in a horrible car accident and was hospitalized for two months. After being in ICU for a little over a month , I reached out to Mr. Corzo and He met me in the hospital a day after. Since my husband was still unconscious and in ICU I decided to hire Mr.Corzo for Davids personal injury and workers compensation case. From the moment I met Mr.Corzo he was very emphatic and attentive to all my questions and concerns. Anytime I would email him with a question he would get back to me right away. I would even email/text his paralegal Denise after hours if I had any questions and she would get back to me within a hour. Mr. Corzo made sure he fully explained and went over everything with us before we made any decisions. Mr. Corzo went out of his way to make sure David was taken care of. After my husband was released from the hospital, Mr. Corzo called and checked up on David and made sure he was getting the care he needed. I truly believe Mr. Corzo went above and beyond for my husband in winning both cases. We are extremely blessed with the outcome and would highly recommend him to anyone that may need a lawyer. Due to my husbands injuries we will need to apply for disability, Mr.Corzo offered to help us fill out the paper work and make sure everything is done correctly. We can’t THANK him enough for all that he has done for our family. #Thankful”
