Q: What is "medical malpractice"?

A: Medical malpractice is the failure of a health care provider, usually a doctor, to provide a patient with treatment equal to the customary standard of care in the medical industry. To proceed with a malpractice lawsuit and throughout Florida, our medical negligence attorneys must prove that this failure resulted in an injury to the patient.

Q: What does "customary standard of care" mean?

A: This phrase refers to whether your doctor has exercised the same degree of care and skill as the average qualified doctor presented with the same or similar circumstances as your case.

Q: Is it medical negligence if my treatment did not yield the result the doctor told me it would or that I thought it would?

A: Not necessarily. A bad outcome isn’t medical negligence unless it was caused by the doctor’s failure to exercise the degree of care and skill of a qualified physician. At Farah & Farah in Jacksonville, our medical negligence lawyers work with physicians to evaluate potential medical malpractice claims. Contact our firm and we will examine your medical records to determine if medical malpractice may have occurred.

Q: How do I know if I have a medical negligence case?

A: If you suspect your doctor didn’t treat you as skillfully, or with the same knowledge as the average qualified doctor would have under the circumstances, you may have a medical negligence claim. However, you must have been injured or harmed in some way as a result of the medical negligence in order to file a lawsuit.

Q: How do you determine if the doctor has failed to follow the customary standard of care?

A: We hire a doctor experienced in the area of medicine of your claim. This expert doctor will review your medical records and examine you to evaluate your medical malpractice case. The doctor will then advise our medical malpractice lawyers as to whether the standard of care has been breached and whether you have been harmed as a result.

Q: Will my medical malpractice case go to trial?

A: It depends. In years past, valid claims were settled without the need for a trial. Recently, most physicians have seen the legal system being abused by plaintiffs and have been less likely to settle. Regardless, you can be confident that at our Jacksonville firm, the team of medical negligence attorneys and support staff are always prepared to go to trial.

Q: How long do most medical negligence cases last?

A: The time it takes to resolve your medical negligence case will depend on the facts involved in your lawsuit. From the time the Florida medical malpractice lawsuit was filed, medical malpractice cases will take an average of one to two years to reach a resolution.

Q: What should I do if the hospital has already asked about a settlement?

A: Contact the Jacksonville office of Farah & Farah immediately. Without the advice of our medical malpractice lawyers, you have no idea what your case is worth and you could be settling for far less than you deserve. Chances are if the hospital seeks a settlement, it’s because they know their mistake could cost them big if taken to trial.
