Question:

Is failure to diagnosis an example of medical malpractice?

Answer:

Florida has a law, called the Good Samaritan Law, that would require a heightened standard of care or proof to establish any claim for compensation that occurs in an emergency room setting if it is being administered because of an urgent situation. Failure to Diagnose All of these claims are dependent on the details of the facts. Our job is to understand the medicine and have a full investigation of all of the facts that have led to the injury, because you can suffer injury in an emergency room that is not covered by the Good Samaritan Law if it is not in response to an urgent situation. Regardless as to whether or not an injury is suffered in an emergency room, we will prosecute it to the full extent of the law.
