It is a shocking and frightening situation to discover that your medical provider has made a serious error, leading to complications, further medical treatment, or in some cases, an early death.
In fact, medical negligence is the third most common cause of death in the USA, with an estimated 400,000 people dying due to error each year, according to a publication in JAMA (Journal of the American Medical Association).

Do You Have an Orange Park Medical Malpractice Case?
Medical malpractice can happen in a range of situations, including at a walk-in urgent care clinic, in a hospital, out-patient surgical center, dental office, medical office, or hospital. Cases of medical malpractice in Orange Park will hinge on the legal concept of negligence. If a medical provider failed to treat you with the accepted standard of care, he or she, and the facility in which the negligence occurred, must be held accountable.
The “accepted standard of care” is that the medical treatment you received should be the same as a similarly qualified practitioner would have performed under the same or similar circumstances. This concept can be applied to a physician ordering specific tests when certain symptoms are present, or reviewing a patient’s medical history thoroughly prior to writing a prescription or performing certain procedures, and many other types of action.
Common Types of Medical Malpractice Include the Following Cases:
- Wrong diagnosis
- Failure to diagnose
- Medication errors
- Surgical errors
- Pharmacy errors
- Birth injuries
- Dentist errors
- Medical test errors
- Wrong prescription
- Anesthetic errors
- Emergency room errors
- Contracting hospital-borne infections
Damages in Orange Park Medical Malpractice Cases
In order for a medical malpractice case to be filed, and ultimately successful, the patient must have damages. These damages can be complications, injuries, a worsened medical condition, or death. For families who have lost a loved one in a case of medical malpractice, a wrongful death claim is the right legal action. If someone in your family, whether a new baby, a child, adult, or aging relative has been seriously impacted by negligent medical care, we urge you to contact our firm now.
Medical Malpractice Cases Are Complex to Resolve
Medical malpractice cases are more complex than many other personal injury cases. In order to achieve a positive outcome, it is necessary to call upon respected medical experts to provide testimony in support of your case, and expose that you or your loved one was the victim of substandard treatment and care. Doctors carry malpractice insurance, and these insurance companies engage teams of corporate defense lawyers who fight tooth and nail to avoid a win from the other side. These are not cases for a new lawyer to take on – you want an Orange Park medical malpractice attorney that has a proven record of success.
At Farah & Farah, we have successfully recovered millions of dollars for our clients, and our excellent reputation and extensive record of success are the result of our dedication, hard work, and knowledge in the area of medical malpractice. Just one of our cases led to $5 million settlement for hospital malpractice. Call our Orange Park accident attorneys today at (904) 329-7796 for the quality of legal counsel you want on your side.
