Florida Medical Malpractice Legal Help
Always with our service first philosophy in mind, we represent individuals and their families in a variety of healthcare negligence claims related to mistakes by doctors, nurses and hospitals:
- Medical Malpractice. Medical malpractice occurs when a doctor or other healthcare professional fails to provide the accepted standard of care to a patient. Medical malpractice takes many forms, from an error in medication dosage to an incorrectly assessed X-ray test. No matter how the error took place, Florida law is clear: patients who have been seriously injured by a medical provider’s mistake have the right to pursue legal action. Medical malpractice claims are complex, and both doctors and hospitals hire skilled attorneys to defend their interests – which is why you need an experienced medical malpractice lawyer representing you.
- Medical Misdiagnosis. One of the most common and potentially deadly forms of medical malpractice is misdiagnosis. When a doctor mistakenly diagnoses the wrong disease or fails to correctly read the patient’s symptoms, the real condition goes untreated. Many illnesses are treatable during early stages but can turn fatal if not caught in their early stages. Experts estimate that doctors misdiagnose up to 20 percent of fatal illnesses. Patients and their families have the right to file claims against negligent doctors who fail to correctly diagnose their serious medical conditions.
- Birth Injuries. Birth can be a joyous occasion, but there are many opportunities for injury throughout the pregnancy, labor, and delivery process. Some of these injuries may occur as the result of natural, unpreventable factors – but often, birth injuries stem from medical mistakes. In those instances, families will face immediate complicated medical decisions and rising medical bills, some of which may continue for years. Florida law gives parents the right to pursue legal action on their injured child’s behalf, but successful birth injury claims require extensive research and a birth injury attorney familiar this specific area of medical malpractice.
- Surgical errors. All surgeries carry certain risks, but patients shouldn’t have to suffer harm because of preventable medical mistakes. Yet every year, patients are seriously injured when doctors perform the wrong procedure, leave a surgical sponge or other foreign object inside the body, or make fatal anesthesia errors. Patients have the right to take legal action against negligent doctors or other hospital staff when a surgical error results in an injury, but these cases can be complicated. Some errors are not immediately apparent or are difficult to trace back to the surgical mistake. Experienced medical malpractice attorneys familiar with surgical error claims can review the details of your situation to help determine what happened – and hold negligent providers accountable for your injuries.
