Types of Medical Malpractice

Malove Henratty, P.A.: Fort Lauderdale Personal Injury Law Firm

Medical malpractice and medical negligence are general terms used to refer to virtually every type of professional mistake made in the medical field. However, using broad terms such as these does not necessarily make it easier for plaintiffs to file claims. In fact, without the assistance of an experienced medical malpractice attorney, cases of this nature can be quite difficult to win.

If you or someone you love suffered injury, illness or death due to mistakes made by a medical professional, Malove Henratty, P.A. will help. Backed by more than 50 years of combined experience and countless case successes, our legal team is primed and ready to help you take on the hospital, surgeon or nurse, that caused you harm.

Did Your Doctor Exercise Proper Duty of Care?

All medical professionals, from doctors to surgeons to psychiatrists, have a duty to use diligence and care in the diagnosis and treatment of their patients. Properly diagnosing a condition requires the doctor (or other medical professional) to ask a thorough and informed set of questions regarding the patient’s personal and family medical history. Also included in the doctor’s examination should be a detailed description of the patient’s current symptoms, along with a thorough examination utilizing the necessary diagnostic tests.

If the medical physician who treated you failed to comply with these standards of care, you may have cause for legal action. Submit a case evaluation form to Malove Henratty, P.A. to schedule a free, in-person consultation with a Fort Lauderdale medical malpractice lawyer at our firm.
