What do I do if i think I have a medical malpractice claim?
If you believe that you've been injured as a result of negligent medical care and you believe that you have a medical malpractice claim, it's important that you collect a list of all the physicians that you've seen. It's important that you collect your medical records that you may have on yourself and you're going to want to call an attorney. The medical malpractice statute is very complicated and very rigid and the longer that you wait without getting proper advice may waive any rights that you may have against the medical practitioner or hospital or medical facility that you may believe that you have. In the state of Florida, there is a two-year statute of limitation from the date that malpractice occurred or from the time that you discovered it, so it's critical that you meet with an experienced attorney that's going to fight for your rights.
