Pursing Compensation for Victims of Medical Malpractice

Medical malpractice is not a deliberate act that was intended to hurt someone. However, patients have to put a tremendous amount of trust in 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. 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. Call (352) 261-6767 to contact our office.
