Medical Malpractice in Miami Beach, Florida
All personal injuries can be devastating, whether they happen to ourselves or to someone we love. When an injury or death results from the negligence or carelessness of a medical professional, however, it may seem especially gut-wrenching because you placed a level of trust in that physician or medical staff to uphold a standard of care.
The standards for working in the medical field are high, which explains why we trust doctors and those who work with them when we become vulnerable to illness and injury.
When doctors or their staff fail to live up to these standards—or, worse, blatantly dodge their duty of care to us—it rightfully stirs up feelings of anger, resentment, and hopelessness.

Winning a Medical Malpractice Case
The medical malpractice lawyers serving Miami Beach at Ben Crump Law, PLLC understand what goes into a successful medical malpractice claim, and we want to put our knowledge and resources to work for you.
In order to win a medical malpractice case in Florida, we must establish four facts. First, your case must prove that the medical professional owed you or your loved one a duty of care. We must then prove that they violated that duty. Third, we must prove that you or your loved one suffered an injury due to their failure of duty. Finally, we must gather evidence that you incurred economic or noneconomic damages from your injury.
A medical malpractice lawsuit that establishes these criteria may successfully result in compensation for your losses.
Duty of Care
We first must establish that the responsible party or parties owed you a duty of care. All doctors have strict professional standards they must follow, and these standards stipulate the level of care they must provide to patients. A doctor’s duty of care to their patient also extends to their staff members, including nurses, physician assistants, and lab technicians.
Failure of Duty
We must next show that the responsible party or party did not uphold their duty of care. We will gather evidence and even bring in expert witnesses, which may include other medical professionals, to make this case.
Third, we must show how the responsible party’s failure to uphold their duty of care caused you or your loved one to suffer injuries.
Finally, we count the economic and noneconomic damages suffered by you or your loved one from your injuries.
