The State of Florida has a series of different malpractice statutes that cover every aspect of medical malpractice from basic general guidelines to arbitration requirements and everything in between. Listed here are statutes relevant to malpractice claims, subdivided into different categories. It should be noted that there may be other statutes and case laws applicable to cases in certain circumstances.

General Malpractice Laws

These malpractice statutes make up the core of the state’s malpractice laws which manage what a patient can and should expect from doctors, nurses and other medical professionals who provide them with care. Below is a listing of each of these statutes:

Rules for Pursuit Screening

These statutes specifically detail the manner in which attorneys are required to look over potential cases they may be taking on. The laws in this section cover what an attorney should look at in a case, as well as why they are allowed to take or reject a case.

Presuit Arbitration Requirements

An attorney can choose to arbitrate a case as an alternative to a traditional malpractice suit in order to get the best possible result for their clients. There are multiple statutes that oversee this process, as listed below.

Additional Applicable Malpractice Statutes

While the statutes mentioned above primarily cover medical malpractice, there are other laws that may be applicable to a case even if they were not written to specifically deal with them. An attorney handling a malpractice case will decide which laws are applicable to a specific case, if any.

Working with a Malpractice Attorney

Even though the majority of healthcare providers do their best to keep their patients’ best interest in mind, even the best doctor or medical professional can make a mistake. When this happens and patients suffer harm, they have the right to seek compensation through the legal system. The best way to accomplish this is by working with an attorney specializing in medical malpractice cases who will take a detailed look at the unique circumstances of your case and come up with a successful strategy for getting you the compensation you are entitled to.
