Tampa Medical Malpractice Attorney Discusses the Doctor Losing Their License if Found Negligent

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 medical error because of course when that constitutional amendment was created no one wanted to keep physicians from settling cases, when they should and they could.

What happens in your medical malpractice case is that your physician will be reported to the department of health at the time the complaint is filed.  The department of health does not discipline or sanction the physician for the alleged medical error but rather for documenting errors and things like that. It’s unlikely that a physician is going to lose his license for one medical error but over time that can happen.  Your lawsuit doesn’t directly cause the physician to lose his license for one error.
