How do I know if I am a victim of medical malpractice?

Fortunately, the United States is one of the most medically advanced countries on earth. However, despite advanced medical technology and technique, doctors sometimes commit medical malpractice. As in just about any profession, doctors may practice in one or more of a number of specialty areas of medicine. The law holds doctors to a standard within their chosen area or areas of practice; specifically, a "standard of care". In order to bring a medical malpractice suit against a doctor in the State of Florida, a claimant must show (among other things) that there are reasonable grounds to believe that a specific doctor fell below the "standard of care". Of course, the law also requires that the claimant suffer some type of damage as a result of the medical negligence.
