Crystal River Medical Malpractice


Crystal River is located in Citrus County, Florida, United States. The population was 3,108 in the 2010 census (3,485 in 2000). According to the U.S Census estimates of 2012, the city had a population of 3,055. The city was incorporated in 1903 and is the self professed "Home of the Manatee".
Considered the gem of Florida's beautiful Nature Coast, Crystal River is about a two hour drive from Tampa/St. Petersburg. There are abundant opportunities to enjoy nature and water activities in Crystal River. There are six parks and two boat ramps. 

The city is situated around Kings Bay, which is spring-fed and so keeps a constant 72 °F (22 °C) temperature year round. A cluster of 50 springs designated as a first-magnitude system feeds Kings Bay. A first-magnitude system discharges 100 cubic feet or more of water per second, which equals about 64 million gallons of water per day. Because of this discharge amount, the Crystal River Springs group is the second largest springs group in Florida, the first being Spring Creek Springs in Wakulla County near Tallahassee. 


Medical malpractice refers to professional negligence by a health care professional or provider in which treatment provided was substandard, and caused harm, injury or death to a patient.

Medical malpractice can take many forms. Here are some examples of medical negligence that might lead to a lawsuit:
Failure to diagnose or misdiagnosis
Misreading or ignoring laboratory results
Unnecessary surgery
Surgical errors or wrong site surgery
Improper medication or dosage
Poor follow-up or aftercare
Premature discharge
Disregarding or not taking appropriate patient history
Failure to order proper testing


In Florida, medical malpractice cases must be filed within a two-year statute of limitations, which starts to run when the plaintiff discovers, or should have discovered, the negligence that led to the complained injury.
