Can I file a medical malpractice lawsuit against someone other than a doctor?
Yes. Chapter 766, Florida Statutes, provides a list of healthcare providers that can be sued for medical malpractice. This includes physicians, medical doctors, osteopathic physicians, chiropractors, hospitals, surgery facilities, nurses. They’re all contained within that statute and if they are named in the statute, you have to proceed against them for negligence under the Florida Medical Malpractice Statutes.
