Medical Malpractice in Port St. Lucie
In Port St. Lucie, medical negligence or malpractice cases may arise from surgery errors, prescription errors, mistakes in administering medication, misdiagnosis, failure to diagnose, substandard treatment, failure to obtain informed consent, and errors in the child delivery process. However, proving malpractice on the part of medical professionals or medical facilities is often very difficult due to the complex nature of their profession or business.
To succeed in a medical malpractice claim, a good medical negligence lawyer must be able to demonstrate to a jury or judge that the medical professional or institution owed you a duty of care; that the defendant breached that duty by failing to provide proper medical care or by providing substandard care; that the breach of duty was the cause of your injury; and that you sustained physical, emotional, or financial losses due to your injury.
