Parties Involved in a Medical Malpractice Case

Various types of professionals may be liable for a medical malpractice claim. Proving liability requires sufficient evidence, which a Fort Lauderdale medical malpractice attorney can help you assemble. 

Evidence of Medical Malpractice: 

    • medical reports
    • notations from doctors
    • results from X-rays or lab work
    • any other documentation relevant to your treatment and injuries

Liability in a Medical Malpractice Claim 

One of the elements of a medical malpractice case is establishing liability by showing that the healthcare professional did not follow an accepted standard of care. In some circumstances, it could be an individual healthcare provider, a medical institution, or a combination.

Examples of Medical Malpractice Parties That Involved: 

  • specialists
  • physicians
  • pharmacists
  • nurses
  • surgeons
  • anesthesiologists
  • dentists

Examples of Institutions That May be Liable in Medical Malpractice: 

  • pharmacies;
  • hospitals;
  • clinics; and
  • rehabilitation centers.

In addition, those who work for these entities could also be found negligent, potentially leading to two or more parties being named in a lawsuit.

You need to show evidence of an unreasonable standard of care to prove the liability of the healthcare provider. Medical malpractice or dental malpractice cases are built upon negligence, which means there was a deviation from the expected care a patient is to receive and the manner in which it is delivered.

To prove an unreasonable standard of care for medical malpractice, you may need an expert witness. In the state of Florida, a medical expert must be in the same practice area as the party being sued and must have professional experience Florida medical malpractice lawyer in the field during the previous three years.
