Brevard County Medical Malpractice Lawyer

Nearly 100 Years of Combined Experience Fighting for You

When you have suffered injury or a worsening of condition as a result of a medical practitioner's negligence, you have a right to file a malpractice lawsuit against the doctor, and if successful you could recover monetary damages for your losses. When doctors make mistakes, the results can be devastating for the patient.

Consequently most doctors spend a large percentage of their income on expensive malpractice insurance to avoid being held personally liable for the costs of paying on a claim such as yours. The high cost of malpractice premiums goes towards paying for powerful legal defense teams, and when you face such opposition you need a skilled and dedicated attorney on your side.

Statute of Limitations in Florida

The statute of limitations for medical malpractice in Florida is two years from the date of the injury, however, there are exceptions to this rule. If your injury is not discovered initially you have two years from the date of discovery or the date that the injury would have been reasonably discovered to file a claim.

Regardless of when an injury was discovered, there is a four year limit on any medical malpractice case from the date of the injury. This means that if your injury was more then four years old and you did not discover it in that time frame you are not eligible to file a claim unless you were inhibited from discovering your injury through intentional deceit.

Florida law states: “Fraud, concealment, or intentional misrepresentation of fact prevented the discovery of the injury, the period of limitations is extended forward 2 years from the time that the injury is discovered or should have been discovered with the exercise of due diligence, but in no event to exceed 7 years from the date the incident giving rise to the injury occurred.”
