medical_malpractice“If a 747 jetliner crashed every day, killing all 500 people aboard, there would be a national uproar over aviation safety and an all-out mobilization to fix the problem.” However, “in the nation’s hospitals… about the same number of people die on average every day from medical ‘adverse events,’ many of them preventable errors, such as infections or incorrect medications. Where’s the outrage?” USA TODAY Editorial 11.19.10

Each year, thousands of Florida residents put their trust in doctors, nurses and health care professionals to treat them during times of need. It could mean relying on a cardiologist to diagnose and treat your heart attack, rushing an injured family member to the emergency room or simply seeking treatment at a walk-in clinic. Many people never give the quality of care they receive a second thought, but others must suddenly confront the reality that they’ve been harmed at a hospital, treatment center or clinic. Negligence, neglect and mistakes made by health care providers can have serious consequences, but victims of nursing and medical malpractice have rights under the law.

If you have been injured or a member of your family has been hurt or killed by the actions of a doctor, nurse, CNA or other caregiver or hospital, you might not need a lawyer, but you do need to get all the facts.

Medical Malpractice

When people in Florida visit hospitals and clinics, ride in ambulances or seek help at area emergency rooms their lives are in the hands of others. Each day, our health care providers are entrusted with the responsibility of treating the most vulnerable members of our society. Unfortunately, we don’t always get the care we need.

The Florida Office of Insurance Regulation says nearly 4,000 medical malpractice cases are successfully closed in our state every year. While this relatively low number indicates the vast majority of Floridians are receiving adequate care, it also shows that doctors who violate the law can be held accountable for their actions.

Be careful though, proving medical malpractice can be difficult. If you are harmed at the hands of a physician, nurse, CNA, EMT or at a walk-in clinic, you need to know the whole truth. If you are considering taking legal action on your medical malpractice case, review our free book before you decide whether or not to hire a lawyer.

The problem with walk-in clinics …

The days of the old-time family doctor seem like a thing of the past for some people. With the rise of “convenient care,” walk-in clinics and “Doc-in-a-box” one-stop, drop-in facilities, personalized treatment is on the decline and problems are common. Many people who turn to these clinics don’t have any other choice. It could be as simple as being away from home, being faced with a sudden emergency or finding yourself without health insurance. These kinds of “quick care” businesses too often make misdiagnoses, provide negligent treatment or just don’t give people the attention their injuries require.

If you regularly seek help at a walk-in clinic or are considering it, here are some tips about what to know before you go.

If you or a family member has already been a victim of medical malpractice, make sure to consult our new book before proceeding with any legal action.
