The Challenges of a Medical Malpractice Claim Right Now

Medical malpractice claims in southern Florida are intended to help protect patients who have been injured due to the recklessness and negligence of medical professionals. Medical malpractice claims arise when someone is misdiagnosed, incorrectly treated, or suffers another issue caused by recklessness or negligence. If you have a doctor-patient relationship and a doctor causes injury through their actions, you may have a claim.

Right now, medical malpractice claims are more complex. With the COVID-19 pandemic, some patients believe they have contacted COVID-19 in a hospital or clinic setting. However, they don’t always know whether they have a strong claim. In addition, with hospitals sometimes overrun and with patients worried about the coronavirus, some patients find that their care is being delayed or is being affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. They, too, wonder if they have a legal claim.

In reality, the COVID-19 pandemic is an unusual situation and as a result clinics, hospitals, and front-line workers are being given some leeway when it comes to care. That said, you still have patient rights and are expected to receive quality care when you need it. If you have been misdiagnosed, if your surgery has happened on the wrong site, if you’ve been given the wrong dosage of a medication, or if you have suffered any injury due to a medical professional’s negligence, you will want to consult a medical malpractice attorney in Hollywood or your community to find out what your options are. You may still have a claim.

Things get tricky or if you have contracted COVID-19 due to exposure in a healthcare setting. Right now, legislators are still trying to determine whether businesses and healthcare facilities will be protected from COVID-19 related claims. It is also very difficult to prove where you contracted COVID-19 since there is a pandemic. It may be easier to prove your claim if you are a healthcare worker working in a medical setting where there has been an outbreak. Since the situation continues to change and shift, your best option if you have contracted the novel coronavirus is to contact a personal injury attorney to review your options.

If you think you have any claim due to medical malpractice or exposure, contact an attorney to discuss your options with them.

I had a lawyer on another case and I never spoke to the lawyer and I hated that I never knew what was going on in my case. Mr. Flaxman was in constant communication with me, explained everything to me, and his staff was really great too. My phone calls were always returned immediately. It was refreshing to be able to speak to my attorney personally. I would HIGHLY recommend Mr. Flaxman as an attorney to anyone who has been in an accident. Gloria
