Florida Statute Chapter 766 governs the filing of medical malpractice claims. There is a precise procedure to be followed. First all medical records must be requested and obtained. There is a statute which requires the health care provider to deliver those medical records timely and within ten days of request or to suffer losing certain rights. Within the two year statute of limitations from date of negligence or discovery of negligence a formal “ Notice of Intent To Initiate Medical Malpractice Claim “ must be filed and there must be provided a similar health care provider’s affidavit that the at fault health care provider rendered care below the standard of care for similar physician.
