Understanding Medical Malpractice with Robyn Attorney Sztyndor

Robyn Sztyndor is a seasoned medical malpractice lawyer in Fort Lauderdale, FL. With more than a decade of experience representing clients in medical malpractice and healthcare law, Robyn has become a respected expert in her legal specialty. On medical malpractice, Robyn Sztyndor says the patient is often at a disadvantage. She explains that most people believe medical professionals are nearly infallible. They often believe they have no recourse when care providers fail to do their due diligence and deliver a positive outcome.

There are many misconceptions about medical malpractice, Robyn Sztyndor explains. Chief among them is the conflation of malpractice with medical error.

Because most people almost revere doctors, Robyn Sztyndor explains, they assume that a failure to produce a positive medical outcome means some form of malpractice has occurred. In reality, medicine is called a practice because positive results are never guaranteed. The fact is that human health is so complex and subject to innumerable variables that medicinal intervention always comes with risk. 

Heart surgery, for example, is a highly risky procedure category with many possible complications. Robyn Sztyndor explains that real malpractice is a serious problem, but it can be discovered if a medical professional fails to perform due diligence. Medical malpractice can be discovered whether a positive outcome results or not. It is not the result that determines whether malpractice has occurred but how medical professionals perform their duties.

Medical malpractice is defined as the failure to provide competent, quality care. But there is more to it than that. Competence means being competitive with other similar professionals, and quality indicates proficiency in delivering care and materials used in providing care. A doctor can provide competent, quality care and still lose a patient. Likewise, it is possible for a doctor to be guilty of malpractice and achieve a positive medical outcome by good fortune. 

Damage to the patient in the form of injury and suffering matters when determining the compensation amount we should seek. However, if a doctor commits malpractice and, by grace, a positive outcome results, he is still guilty of malpractice. Instances of recklessness may be discovered in a malpractice case to show that a practitioner has a history of reckless behavior. 

Medical error is another factor to consider. Medical billing errors cost American patients an estimated $210,000,000,000 each year. Approximately 12,000,000 Americans are misdiagnosed, and more than 250,000 deaths are caused by medical errors yearly.

Medical errors usually refer to preventable mistakes caused by carelessness. But sometimes, a medical error falls into the range of known risks. This is because medical science is a practice and is not infallible.

When reviewing a possible medical malpractice case, Robyn Sztyndor explains, that we must consider all of this. We will look at the record of the medical professional or unit at issue. We will review their performance over time and look for preventable errors and oversights to place the events presented in a case in context.
