Pompano Beach Medical Malpractice
Situated in southern Florida, in Broward County, Pompano Beach is famous as the home of the Goodyear blimp. Close to Fort Lauderdale, the city is also famous for its many yearly festivals and events, including its annual seafood festival. The warm beaches in the city offer great opportunities for boaters, swimmers, and surfers, while those with a taste for the nightlife enjoy Miami and the other nearby Florida cities.
Pompano Beach, like all Florida cities, has its share of medical professionals, clinics, and hospitals in the area. These medical professionals and facilities help patients from all walks of life. If you have been in a serious Pompano Beach car accident or have an illness, you trust doctors and medical facilities to provide a reasonable standard of care so that you can heal.
Unfortunately, for some patients, visiting a doctor can result in catastrophic injuries, misdiagnosis, and complications. According to researchers at Harvard University, 98,000 patients die annually across the country as a result of medical mistakes. In many cases, these mistakes are preventable and are caused by recklessness or negligence. In cases where a doctor or medical facility fail to provide the reasonable level of care that a competent medical professional in the same instance would provide, they can be held liable for the injuries that result.
While some experts consider the rate of medical mistakes to be an epidemic, few qualified patients actually pursue Pompano Beach medical malpractice claims. There are a number of reasons for this. One of the most common causes is that many patients do not realize that their injuries were caused by medical error or by negligence. In addition, many patients are not aware of their rights and options and so do not realize that they are eligible for compensation that can help them pay for lost income, medical expenses, and other costs related to their injuries.
