Medical Malpractice Lawyer North Miami Beach

Recently, a Florida appeals court upheld the constitutionality of a change in the state’s medical malpractice laws. This change ruled, in part, that those pursuing malpractice lawsuits must waive some of their privacy rights. The three-judge panel of the 1st District Court of Appeals dealt with issues regarding a 2013 law on ex parte communications. The law requires a person who is filing a malpractice claim to sign forms authorizing such communications. Essentially, this means that a defense attorney could obtain private health information about a patient who is suing a doctor for malpractice. The information could be obtained from the patient’s prior doctors without his or her attorney being […]

Sep 23, 2014 | Under Medical Malpractice | Posted by | 0 Comments
dantelaw.comDoctors are human beings and make mistakes like anyone else. Unfortunately, in other professions, mistakes are not as likely to result in death. Most hospitals do their best to turn serious mistakes into educational experiences for everyone through conferences, which highlight mistakes in patient management. However those who have lost a loved one from a physician’s mistake may find little comfort in that fact. The Journal of Patient Safety estimates that between 210,000 and 440,000 patients who enter the hospital each year suffer some type of preventable harm that ultimately leads to their death. (The reluctance of providers to report mistakes makes arriving at an exact number nearly impossible). In […]

Aug 27, 2014 | Under Medical Malpractice | Posted by | 0 Comments

The Florida Department of Health intends to appeal a recent decision by the Board of Medicine in the case of Miami doctor Peter V. Choy.
