Victims of Medical Mistakes Need Experienced Medical Malpractice Attorney

Representing Orlando, Tampa, Miami and Nearby Areas of Florida

Medical mistakes can be the result of an inaccurate or incomplete diagnosis, providing the wrong advice or treatment for a correctly diagnosed ailment, surgical error, nursing error or other medical staff mistake, or prescription error, among other medical mishaps. Medical errors are estimated to cause between 44,000 and 98,000 unnecessary and wrongful deaths in the U.S. each year. Medical malpractice causes about 1,000,000 unnecessary injuries annually. Often families don’t even know that an error has occurred. Despite constitutional amendment in Florida requiring records of known medical mistakes to be accessible to patients, in practice doctors, nurses and hospitals are ferocious in their protection of one another from the discovery of tragic medical mistakes. Too often, medical professionals try to cover up, rather than “fess up.”

 

If you or a loved one suspects medical malpractice, you need an experienced medical malpractice attorney to navigate the complex statutory scheme and constitutional amendments that are designed largely to protect the medical profession from facing accountability for their mistakes.
