Lawyers Representing Malpractice Lawsuits
Medical malpractice is not a deliberate act that was intended to hurt someone. However, patients have to put a tremendous amount of trust on doctors, nurses and medical institutions, and these entities are held to very strict standards of care by both state and federal regulations. So, when medical professionals fail to perform their duties with a high level of competence and care, the end result can have serious consequences. Florida's malpractice laws were created to protect both the professional healthcare provider as well as the patient by defining strict limits of liability in cases involving medical negligence. But, malpractice lawsuits are complicated and must be properly managed to adequately address the unique legal issues. Whether you decide to hire our law firm or not, we offer a FREE initial attorney consultation to explain your rights and options.

I was referred to Mr. Mercadante by a friend after being rear-ended in 12/12. After meeting with Mr. Mercadante and his associates/staff I was able to turn all insurance paperwork and decisions over to their office. I was treated with kindness, care and was always able to talk to someone when needed. Becasue they did such a great job all I had to do was work on getting better. I would recommend this office to anyone needing to file a personal injury case. Mr. Mercadante was able to get me a fair settlement and I WOULD NOT hesitate to use this office again. Check them out. I am sure that you will be just as satisfied. The entire staff goes above and beyond. Thank you all!!
