Can I receive damages for pain and suffering in a Florida medical malpractice case?

Pain and suffering is a very, very important element of damage in any malpractice case, in any case in Florida in which you sue for negligence. Malpractice is nothing more than negligent medical care. Medical care beneath an appropriate standard of care. And of course you must be physically or mentally injured in order to have pain and suffering damages. But absolutely, pain and suffering damages are an important key element of any medical malpractice claim.

Yes, you can. Usually cannot file a lawsuit against your employer. We have what’s called in Florida workers’ compensation immunity by statute and by case law.

If the truck driver was negligent, yes you can. You can sue the company because they’re always responsible for any negligence of their driver.

Can I sue the owner of the property if I was injured in Florida in a construction accident?

You certainly can, but the owner must have a reason to be sued. For example, if there was a hole in the property and you had to traverse the property, if there was a pipe coming out of the ground and it shouldn’t have been there in the path of ingress or egress, if there was something the owner knew or should have known and didn’t correct, then the owner certainly can be responsible. This is why you need a competent construction site accident lawyer to help you to determine whether or not the owner may be liable.

Can I sue my doctor for operating on the wrong limb?

There’s no such thing as a slam dunk in law, but this is as close to a slam dunk as I’ve seen. If they operate on the wrong limb, especially cause damages, then of course, go to a lawyer right away. Don’t try to negotiate with the doctors, insurance company, yourself, or pros that are skilled in keeping down damages. Of course, as the operation is a mere cut and you don’t even have a scar, yes, you can sue, but the damages in any malpractice case, any case where taking to trial must be fairly significant or it’s just not worth it.

Can I sue my doctor for birth defects?

Well, it depends, which doctor, what birth defects, what it was caused by. Certainly if you have birth defects the statute of limitations is probably long gone, the two years in which somebody, your parents, should have known that there was a medical error. If there is a medical error and your child is injured, you should go to a lawyer as quickly as possible and determine whether or not the injury suffered or the birth defect suffered by the child, is or could be as a result of that doctor falling beneath the appropriate standard of care of a practitioner in their field.
