New Smyrna Beach, Florida Medical Negligence Attorney
Being injured by a doctor seems counterintuitive, but it does happen. When it does, you need an experienced Daytona Beach medical malpractice attorney to get you through the process – even legal settlements – to get you the compensation you deserve for any medical bills, lost wages, or pain and suffering.
Medical Malpractice in Florida
When you put your health in the trust of a medical provider, you expect a certain level of care. If you are not given that care, or it deviates from what is acceptable, you may be injured. If you are injured, they must be held accountable.
While a bad outcome of a surgery or a visit to the doctor does not always mean that you have a case, however in many situations you do. Your attorney will be able to counsel you on what is acceptable and what is not. Examples of medical malpractice include:
- Charting errors
- Failure to use sterile instruments
- Failure to diagnose
- Medication errors
- Misuse of tools
- Operation without consent
- Post care errors
Proving Your Case
In order to prove your case, you will have to prove that there is a link between your doctor’s negligence and your injury. Your attorney will have to work to look at each and every detail of your treatment, including what was done before and after the procedure or appointment. Attorney Larry Avallone works with medical professionals to understand the proper procedure and where it went wrong. He handles several different types of medical malpractice lawsuits, including OBGYN, dental, chiropractor, general surgery, and psychiatric malpractice.
