What Is Medical Malpractice?

Medical malpractice occurs when a medical provider causes an injury to a patient.

This includes:

  • Hospital
  • Doctor
  • Other health care professional, through a negligent act or omission

How Do You Prove Medical Malpractice?

Every medical professional has an obligation to their patients to treat them to the best of their ability, known as the “standard of care” or “duty of care.” When this standard is violated and causes harm to a patient, malpractice has occurred.

  • Do I need to hire a lawyer for a personal injury case?
    Whether or not you should hire a lawyer depends largely on two factors: the extent of the damages and your personal preference. If you were in a minor accident that resulted in minor injuries and it is clear who is at fault, you can probably handle the claim on your own. If you have suffered serious injuries, the liable party is being uncooperative and denying fault, and/or other factors are making the case more complex than you feel capable of handling on your own, hiring an attorney is likely a good call. However, ultimately the choice is yours. We recommend at least consulting with a lawyer—or even a few—before making your final decision.
  • How often do personal injury claims go to court?
    Not very. Most personal injury claims are settled with negotiations and never see the inside of a courtroom. Only about 5% of personal injury cases in the U.S. make it to trial. However, we always prepare our cases for trial just in case.
  • What is the personal injury statute of limitations in Florida?
    In Florida, the deadline to file a personal injury claim (also known as the statute of limitations) is four (4) years.

    "Samuel M. Yaffa is The Best Attorney Ever!"

    Samuel M. Yaffa is the best attorney ever! I was badly injured in a trip and fall accident and was so fortunate that a friend referred me to Mr. Yaffa. He is a very good lawyer, extremely knowledgeable about our laws, and he handled my case from beginning to end with the utmost professionalism and dedication. Mr. Yaffa’s Paralegal, Lori, has a lovely personality and is also devoted to her job, so between the two of them, I was always kept informed of my case status and completely aware of what was going on with any issues involved. They cared about me and treated me as family. Since I had a lot of difficulty getting around due to injuries from the accident, Mr. Yaffa would always go out of his way to meet with me at my home for consultations, case discussions or to review and go over any paperwork involved. He always had my best interests at heart. Although my case has come to a conclusion, I still keep in touch with Sam and Lori and we will always remain friends.

    I will always recommend Samuel M. Yaffa to anyone who needs legal advice or representation!
