Every year patients who have been injured as a result of errors committed during surgical procedures file medical malpractice claims. Medical malpractice claims are complicated and involve a variety of different issues that must be considered. If you have been injured as a result of errors committed during surgery, contact Aronovitz Law to speak with our experienced medical malpractice attorneys in Miami FL.

What does a Florida medical malpractice claim involve?
In order to be successful in recovering money damages in a medical malpractice claim, you must be able to show that the surgeon and other medical staff failed to conduct the surgery in accordance with an expected reasonable standard of medical care. Proving the error and breach of the standard of care can be complex and require the assistance of expert witnesses or other medical providers. An attorney can assist in identifying necessary expert witnesses.

If there is evidence to show that the surgeon committed an error or was otherwise negligent, then you must be able to show the extent of your injuries that were caused by the error. This may require additional medical examinations with input from other medical providers.

A medical malpractice claim will also require you to establish the extent of your money damages. Some damages, such as your medical expenses and other out-of-pocket expenses are easier to prove. Other damages, like pain and suffering, emotional distress and others are more difficult to quantify. Because each situation is unique, you can consult with an attorney to determine the amount of damages that would be fair and reasonable for your case.
