When a doctor, nurse or other healthcare professional provides medical care that does not meet the professional standard of care and such medical treatment injures or kills a patient, the patient or the patient’s family may have a medical malpractice claim.
The Ben Law Firm represents patients in South Florida who have been injured by their medical provider. Medical malpractice may include the following conduct:
- radiologist missed or delayed the diagnoses of a medical condition;
- surgeon removed a body part without the patient’s informed consent;
- obstetrician mishandled delivery, such that the newborn suffered birth injuries; and
- pharmacist dispensed the wrong medication.
If a court finds that your healthcare provider was negligent, it may require the provider to pay compensatory damages to restore you to the situation you were in before the injury. This means that the responsible party may have to pay for your medical expenses, lost wages and ongoing treatment costs. If the case is particularly severe or the individual acted with intent to harm, the injury may merit an award of punitive damages to punish the party who caused the injury, and deter or prevent them from injuring others.
