As with any injury case, one of the most important part of a medical negligence case is the prompt gathering and expert review of evidence.  When we accept a Medical Malpractice case, The Miami Personal Injury Law Firm of The Altman Law Firm retains appropriate experts such as expert nurses, doctors and rehabilitation specialists to provide expert testimony explaining what the appropriate standard of care is and if that standard was met.  This is imperative in Florida because the law requires that an expert, in the same medical field as the doctor accused of negligence, provide sworn testimony detailing the negligence before a lawsuit can be filed.  Furthermore, Florida Law requires that an injured person cannot file a lawsuit until that person participates in a Pre-Suit process.
