What is Medical Malpractice?
Medical malpractice is likely to occur when a doctor or other healthcare professional provides a level of care that does not meet the approved set of standards upheld by the medical community. When a patient suffers injury or death as a result of a healthcare provider’s sub-standard care, medical malpractice occurs.
Some examples of medical malpractice include:
- Improperly administering anesthesia
- Causing a patient to suffer lack of oxygen during a medical procedure
- Delaying treatment or failing to diagnose a medical condition, including cancer
- Injuries sustained during child birth
- Administering the wrong medication
- Surgical errors, such as operating on the wrong body part or leaving surgical instruments inside a patient
- Spreading infections or diseases by using contaminated medical equipment
- Incorrectly interpreting blood test results
- Using defective medical products and devices
In general, a healthcare professional’s conduct is considered malpractice when he or she acts in a negligent manner. A doctor has acted negligently if they cause harm or death to a patient, when another doctor in a similar situation would not have injured the patient by exercising due care and adhering to set medical standards.
If you were injured while under the care of a healthcare provider, or if a loved one lost their life due to medical negligence, you may be entitled to file a medical malpractice lawsuit and hold the at-fault doctor or medical facility legally accountable for their actions.

Medical Malpractice Lawsuit Process
When you contact the skilled malpractice lawyers at Gordon & Partners, we will first review the details of your situation to determine if you have a case. If your situation warrants legal action, we will launch an investigation to uncover evidence of neglect on behalf of your physician or other healthcare provider.
At this point, the healthcare provider or medical facility will most likely try to reach a settlement to avoid taking the case to trial. If we cannot negotiate a settlement on your behalf that we feel is just and sufficient, we are not afraid to take your case to court.
Our Plantation personal injury lawyers will be fully prepared to present your case before a judge and/or jury. The trial will consist of witness testimony, evaluations from specialists and cross-examinations. The judge or jury will deliberate before making a decision regarding the alleged medical malpractice. If they determine your injury was caused by a healthcare provider’s negligent actions, they will then determine the amount of compensation you should be awarded.

- Proving the healthcare professional acted negligently and without regard for medical standards
