Statute of Limitations For Medical Malpractice Claims in Florida

Since medical malpractice injuries are not always discovered right away, the statute of limitations to file a medical malpractice claim works a little differently than filing a personal injury claim. According to Fla. Stat. Ann. § 95.11, you have two years from the date you were injured or the date you discovered your injury to file a claim with a maximum amount of time to file a claim being two years. The statute of limitations can be a complex area of medical malpractice law, so call our firm today to learn how this law may affect your case.

Building a Strong Medical Malpractice Case 

Whether you are taking legal action against a doctor, hospital, specialist, or another medical professional or facility, you will need to show basic elements of proof. The burden of proof is heavy on the shoulders of the individual accusing a medical provider of malpractice.

While the intention behind this is to prevent fraudulent claims as well as to deter disgruntled patients from filing a lawsuit simply because they are unhappy with the results of their treatment, this can make proving genuine acts of malpractice difficult—especially since health providers tend to enlist experienced lawyers and medical experts to back them up. We will help you stand up against negligent medical providers by building you a strong claim that proves malpractice led to your injuries. In order to prove medical malpractice occurred you must be able to prove that:

  • The doctor/facility you are suing owed you a legal duty of care,
  • They failed to conform to the accepted standard of care, and
  • That deviation constituted a breach of duty, which was a direct and proximate cause of your injuries.

Additionally, you need to show that you suffered damages as a result of the injuries. Request a copy of your medical records and bring them with you for your medical malpractice attorney to review.
