Miami Medical Malpractice Attorneys
An incidence of medical malpractice can be devastating to both the victim and his or her family members, especially since medical professionals are to be trusted and are expected to provide a certain quality of care.
Medical malpractice can be defined as professional negligence, by act or omission, by a healthcare provider in which the treatment provided falls below the accepted standard of practice in the medical community and causes injury or death to the patient. When pursuing a medical negligence lawsuit, it must first be determined who is responsible for the victim’s injuries and suffering; whether it be the doctor, nurse, hospital or a combination of these factors. Available insurance coverage should also be taken into consideration. An experienced and aggressive Miami medical malpractice attorney at the Law Offices of Jose M.
