Medicine is amazing but mistakes can and do happen. Frequently these mistakes are preventable if a healthcare professional follows simple protocols. If you or a loved one are hospitalized, here are tips to help you obtain a better understanding of your situation and ultimately a more accountable standard of care:

  • Take extensive notes
  • If you will be sedated, you will want to have an advocate present to speak for you
  • Do not hesitate to speak to an attorney if you or a family member has been injured due to medical malpractice.

It is important to note that Florida law limits the time to bring a medical malpractice claim to two years from the date of the injury, or the date you should have known about the injury. Florida law will not allow you to file a medical malpractice claim if it has been more than four years since the date of the injury.

If you or a family member has been injured due to the failure of a healthcare professional to follow standard protocols, it is important that you retain a competent and experienced attorney. For a free medical malpractice case evaluation, contact the office of Joseph F. Diaco, Jr. at 888-SOS-FIRM.
