MEDICAL MALPRACTICE LAWYER
Medical malpractice happens when a healthcare provider injures a patient due to a mistake or negligence. But not all medical mistakes or negligence is considered medical malpractice. On top of that, the Florida Legislature has created a complex set of rules that make it even more difficult for victims of medical malpractice to seek compensation, such as requiring an affidavit from a medical expert before a claim can be started.
