We trust our doctors and other medical professionals to take care of us when we go to the hospital or other facilities for treatment. Doctors and medical professionals are held to a standard of care for patients; however, there are times when they violate this standard of care and patients are injured. While not every death or bad result constitutes medical malpractice, if a medical professional fails to perform his or her duties within the standard of care set by the industry, that medical professional may be guilty of medical malpractice.
Gregory Law Firm has been representing victims of medical malpractice in Jacksonville and the surrounding communities since 1979. Florida’s laws do not necessarily protect patients and only an experienced medical malpractice attorney knows how to work within those laws to seek justice for the victims. If you or a family member has been injured by a medical professional, you need a medical malpractice lawyer to ensure that your rights are protected. Contact our office in Jacksonville, FL, at 904-722-2222 to schedule a free consultation.
You Must Act Quickly to Protect Your Claim Under a Medical Malpractice Action
Florida laws that govern medical malpractice claims require that the patient file a lawsuit within two years from the date of the malpractice or the date the patient should have discovered the malpractice. The Statute of Limitations on medical malpractice claims in Florida protects the doctor or medical professional more than the patient. Our team will go to work for you immediately if you believe that you or a family member has been the victim of medical malpractice. These types of cases can be complex; therefore, we need as much time as possible to prepare a lawsuit.
At Gregory Law Firm, our clients are our top priority. We have been representing victims of medical malpractice and their families since 1979.
Even if you believe that the time limits have expired, you should still consult with our team to see if your case qualifies for any of the several exceptions to the general rule. For example, if the hospital or medical provider tried to hide the mistake from the patient, the time limit may be extended. Consulting with a medical malpractice attorney as soon as you suspect medical malpractice is the best way to protect your rights and recover compensation for your injuries.
