Many people often wonder if a medical provider who’s committed a medical error is going to lose their license. We do have a law in Florida where physicians can lose their license as a result of “three strikes”. What constitutes a strike is not necessarily admitting to a medical error. What happens in your medical malpractice case is your physician will be reported to the department of health at the time the complaint is filed. In our experience, the department of health does not discipline or sanction the physician for the alleged medical error, but rather documenting the errors. It’s unlikely that a physician is going to lose their license for one medical error, but over time through the department of health that can happen. A law suit doesn’t directly cause the physician to lose his license for one error.
