Miami Man Dies From Coronavirus After Being Released From Hospital

Stories like this seem to be playing out on the news nearly every day. A Miami man reportedly died of respiratory failure at home after being discharged from the hospital with a diagnosis of COVID-19. Another man tried to go to the hospital but was told by 911 that his symptoms were not severe enough and they would not send an ambulance.

Under Florida’s medical malpractice law, a victim or the family of a person who died from coronavirus may be entitled to recover damages based on the death or personal injury if the healthcare provider breached the prevailing professional standard of care for that healthcare provider.
