Trust The Florida Law Group’s highly skilled Lakeland medical malpractice lawyers to advocate for justice
Did you know that medical malpractice is estimated to be the third leading cause of death in the United States? Medical malpractice occurs when a doctor, nurse, hospital, or other healthcare provider violates (either intentionally or unintentionally) the standard of care, resulting in injury to the patient. Obviously, doctors cannot control and are not responsible for every bad outcome; sometimes complications occur that were no one’s fault, but when their mistakes cause bad outcomes, the victims are legally entitled to file a malpractice lawsuit and seek financial restitution. If you are in this situation, however, recovering the full amount that you deserve can be extremely difficult. Doctors can afford to pay for expensive, qualified lawyers, and their insurance companies will fight to preserve their reputation and protect their bottom line. That’s why you need an experienced law firm with a successful track record on your side. Call today to schedule a FREE consultation with our Lakeland medical malpractice lawyers and discover your legal options! You only have to pay our legal fees if we win your case.
“Medical malpractice” is an umbrella term that encompasses a variety of specific negligent actions. It can include misdiagnosis, delayed diagnosis, misreading lab results or ignoring them altogether, unnecessary surgery, surgical errors, wrong site surgery, improper medication or dosage, premature discharge, failure to recognize symptoms, and more. Malpractice can be as much the failure to do something a medical professional should as much as doing something a medical professional should not. Depending on your specific circumstance, you may have to pay for additional hospital stays, imaging tests like X-rays or MRIs, surgical procedures, physical therapy and rehabilitation, and more – costs that would not have been incurred if the medical professional had not committed malpractice. You may endure physical and emotional pain that you should not have had to endure, or miss out on work/fun activities that you should have been able to participate in. You may be permanently injured; your loved one may have lost their life due to malpractice. The bills may add up to hundreds, thousands, tens of thousands, or hundreds of thousands of dollars. The intangible suffering you experienced may be priceless. It’s not fair that you should have to pay these costs out of your own pocket, but insurance companies will rarely be willing to settle for the full amount your injuries are worth.
Our Lakeland medical malpractice lawyers know how to value your injuries and are not intimidated by medical professionals or large insurers. We have the knowledge and experience to be able to prove that the medical professional owed you a standard of care, that they failed to uphold that standard, and that you suffered harm as a direct result of their action/inaction. Our attorneys are able to take on even the most challenging malpractice cases and build a strong claim for compensation. Since 1984, we have recovered over $1 billion dollars for medical malpractice victims in Florida, including Lakeland. Our aggressive lawyers will never give up until we are able to recover the full amount that you need to thrive, and we are not afraid to go to trial if necessary. It is not uncommon for us to recover million and multi-million dollar settlements in individual cases. Call today to get your questions answered during a free consultation!
