Losing a loved one is never easy, but losing a loved one to an accident or event that could have been avoided adds the pain of injustice to the pain of loss. If you have lost a loved one through an event that you believe was caused by negligence, please contact an expert in wrongful death cases to help you. Wrongful death lawsuits require an expert because they are not as straightforward as they may seem.

What is Wrongful Death?

The right to sue in the case of wrongful death is established in Florida’s Wrongful Death Act that specifically states:

Proving medical malpractice in Florida can be challenging, but if you or a loved one has experienced serious injury or death which you suspect was caused by medical malpractice, you should seek legal help from an experienced, dedicated, medical malpractice attorney. 

Medical malpractice occurs when a healthcare provider has not followed a reasonable standard of care, which has resulted in the injury or death of a patient. For medical malpractice purposes, “standard of care” refers to the level at which the average, prudent provider in a given community would manage a patient’s care under the same or similar circumstances. 

Therefore, in order to demonstrate medical malpractice in Florida, you must show that the healthcare provider owed you a duty of care, that the provider fell below that standard, that you suffered injury or damage that was caused by the healthcare provider’s breach of duty, and that injury or damage can be demonstrated legally.
