Lakeland Medical Malpractice Lawyers
Adverse Medical Incidents
Our Lakeland medical malpractice lawyers have experience handling a variety of types of medical malpractice cases. If you believe that the medical treatment that you received from a doctor in Lakeland fell below the accepted standard of care or if you believe that the outcome of your treatment does not seem like it should have occurred, your potential case can be reviewed by a Lakeland medical malpractice lawyer. In Florida, your potential medical malpractice case must be reviewed by a medical provider with the same or similar qualifications as the provider that you believe was negligent. Without this pre-suit expert review process, you cannot bring a lawsuit. There are also a number of legal requirements that you must meet in order to bring a case in Florida. The damages that you can claim from an incident of medical malpractice in Lakeland include bodily injury, pain and suffering, disability, disfigurement, mental anguish, loss of capacity for enjoyment of life, expense of hospitalization, medical treatment and nursing care, past and future wage loss and earning capacity, and aggravation to a pre-existing condition. If your case resulted in the death of a loved one, there are age limitations to the claims of surviving children and having a surviving spouse may be a critical element of damages.
