  • What is Medical Malpractice?

    Medical malpractice is a broad area of law that involves a breach of duty of care on the part of a medical professional that leads to medical errors. This often involves surgery, but can cover a variety of other circumstances such as:

    • Misdiagnosis, as well as the failure to diagnose a medical condition in a timely manner;
    • Prescribing wrong drugs, causing harmful side effects or overdose;
    • Over-prescribing drugs and helping cause a harmful addiction;
    • Waiting too long or failing to perform a circumstantially necessary medical procedure, such as a C-section;
    • Failing to follow proper medical hygiene procedures, leading to dangerous infections; and
    • Failure to monitor patients.

    This list isn’t exhaustive. Whether you’re going under the knife or not, if you leave a medical professional feeling worse than you started, and think they might be the one to blame, contacting an lawyer could mean getting the help you need.

  • How Can an Lawyer Help?

    Medical malpractice is a section of the legal field that is highly complex, owing to the interplay between medical and legal concepts. Statutes pertaining to medical malpractice are constantly changing and expanding. Florida state law also imposes special procedural requirements on medical malpractice claims in an effort to discourage these kinds of claims and encourage settlement before trial.

    Our lawyers comb through medical records to get the most accurate depiction of what occurred as possible. These records are reviewed with medical professionals to determine their importance in relation to the case, and if they hold any information that can help get you compensation, such as evidence of a breach of duty of care.

    Proving a medical malpractice case can be difficult, and taking on a well-protected doctor or hospital alone isn’t enough. In most cases, the healthcare industry will not admit wrongdoing, and refuse to offer compensation.

    Our medical malpractice lawyers at Morgan & Morgan have a proven track record of success. They have helped hold healthcare professionals accountable for carelessness with million-dollar settlements and verdicts, including one for more than $38 million against a doctor who failed to perform a timely C-section.
