FAQs About Medical Malpractice in Florida

What Is Medical Malpractice?

When a doctor, nurse, or other healthcare professional fails to provide a reasonable standard of care or acts negligently, the results can be devastating. As a victim of medical negligence, you may not know where to turn to receive help during this difficult time.

Who Can Be Held Liable in a Medical Malpractice Claim?

Any medical professional or organization that owes you a standard of care and fails to provide that care can be held liable for medical malpractice.

This includes but is not limited to:

  • Hospitals
  • Outpatient surgical centers
  • Nurses
  • Doctors
  • Physician assistants
  • Anesthesiologists
  • Home healthcare agency staff

Related claims can be brought against the manufacturers of healthcare products including orthopedic implants, wound vacs, and others. Our Jacksonville medical malpractice attorneys have decades of experience handling these difficult and demanding claims.

What Is the Statute of Limitations For a Medical Malpractice Claim?

Medical malpractice claims are governed by a complex set of laws or statutes which dictate when a claim can be filed and what steps must be taken prior to filing a claim.

Generally, a medical malpractice claim must be filed within two years of when the malpractice occurred or within two years of when an injury is discovered that is related to the malpractice. Once the statute of limitations expires, your ability to bring a claim is barred forever.

There are exceptions, however, which means it is very important to contact an attorney familiar with malpractice claims and the laws which govern them to determine the date by which your claim must be filed.

Spohrer Dodd is recognized throughout the state as a leading medical malpractice firm

Our team works closely to pinpoint how, when, and why a patient’s injury or death occurred and who is responsible. Locally and throughout the state, individuals, as well as attorneys who do not specialize in this unique area of practice, seek out our firm’s attorneys to maximize the recovery to victims of medical negligence.

One example of this is McGarry v. Memorial Hospital, where our legal team prevailed in complex and contentious litigation involving incapacitating injury caused by medical mistakes. At trial, a jury awarded our client $7,165,000 to compensate him for his losses and degraded quality of life.

About Spohrer Dodd

Over 150 Years of Combined Legal Experience
  • "The company who we believed wronged our family was so much bigger and larger than us - bigger, stronger, lot of money and lot of attorneys and the fact that Jay felt like he could go up against if you will, this giant with confidence. It gave us a sense of confidence and we couldn't have never done it without Jay - we couldn't have never gone up against the giant, if you will."
  • "I had a benign, yet fatal tumor in my brain. Other firms had turned us down, where we knew we had a case or felt we had a case. Gretchen couldn't have been any more sympathetic to my case and my situation. She'd stuck with us - she stuck with us and kept fighting for it."
