|Medical Malpractice Attorney North Miami
Medical malpractice is a term used to define cases in which a medical practitioner performs his or her duty in a negligent manner in the course of treating a patient. Taking action, or failure to take medically appropriate action can be reasons for a medical malpractice lawsuit. This can mean failure to diagnose a condition, incorrect diagnosis, failure to provide appropriate treatment, or a delay in treatment for a diagnosed condition without reasonable cause.
Since the laws and rules governing medical malpractice lawsuits vary in each state, in Miami Florida, you are best served by an expert in Florida medical malpractice laws and procedures. This person is attorney Mark Wolin.
One category of medical malpractice lawsuits is informed consent. This involves a medical practitioner performing a procedure without informing the patient and gaining consent for the procedure. Should some information is withheld that could have helped the patient make an informed decision, such as the chances for success or harmful side effects, the patient’s not being able to make an informed decision is taken into account. Should this procedure result in harm to the patient, a malpractice suit may be appropriate. Consult medical malpractice attorney Mark Wolin for advice regarding informed consent medical malpractice lawsuits.
