Medical Malpractice Is Common And Dangerous
Medical malpractice claims in Florida are both complex, and legally challenging.
There are many laws in Florida that provide protections to doctors, hospitals, and other health care providers, protections that are not available to other members of society. Frankly, in many cases, these protections are appropriate. But there are also other protections that are burdensome on consumers, from limitations on damages to sovereign immunity protections to statute of limitations protections to claim handling procedure protections.
We Can Help
The Briggs Law Firm handles a very limited number of medical malpractice and nursing home negligence cases.
Which cases do we handle?
It is probably an accurate description to say that our firm handles those cases in which the bad conduct of the doctor, or nurse, or health care provider is considered “clearly negligent.”
People might disagree on what constitutes “clearly negligent” conduct. While no absolute definition exists, our threshold criterion is whether other doctors, or other nurses, would themselves consider the conduct to be “clearly negligent.” In many of the cases we have handled, we have learned that the general medical community would agree that the conduct complained of was “clearly negligent” and should not have happened if the practitioner was reasonably careful.
