Sarasota, FL Medical Malpractice

Doctors are often trusted to perform both serious and cosmetic procedures; rightfully so, as they were trained to. But the unfortunate truth is that healthcare professionals can make mistakes — with their patients often paying the highest price. Medical patients can be the victims of all types of negligent and reckless behavior. This can result in pain, suffering, and even death for the victims of medical malpractice, as well as heartbreak for their loved ones.

There is a recourse for the victims of medical negligence and recklessness, however: filing a medical malpractice lawsuit. A patient who suffers from illness or injury due to malpractice can sue any member of the healthcare industry, including doctors, dentists, surgeons, or nurses.

Our medical malpractice attorneys at Morgan & Morgan have the experience and resources to pursue a broad array of malpractice claims. If you or a loved one have been injured due to the negligent actions of a healthcare professional, we can help. Contact our Sarasota branch to learn if you can recover compensation for your expenses, pain, and suffering. 

Florida has a statute of limitations in which to file a medical malpractice lawsuit, so don’t delay. Fill out our free, no-risk case evaluation form.

  • What is Medical Malpractice?

    Medical malpractice is defined as a negligent act or omission by a healthcare professional that causes injury to a patient. Any member of the healthcare industry can be responsible for malpractice, which can occur during diagnosis, treatment, post-treatment care, or health management.

    For instance, in Florida, doctors and other healthcare providers are legally required to inform patients of the possible risks associated with recommended medical procedures. Medical professionals who fail to inform their patients of potential side effects may be liable for medical malpractice if their patients suffer as a result.

  • Types of Medical Malpractice

    There are multiple forms of medical malpractice. Our Sarasota attorneys can represent clients in medical malpractice lawsuits that include:

    • Failure to recognize symptoms
    • Failure to diagnose or misdiagnosis
    • Disregarding or not taking appropriate patient history
    • Misreading or ignoring laboratory results
    • Emergency room errors
    • Failure to obtain informed consent
    • Failure to order proper testing
    • OB/GYN negligence
    • Birth injuries
    • Radiation injuries
    • Pharmacy malpractice, including medication and/or dosage errors
    • Misread x-rays and ultrasounds
    • Plastic surgery malpractice
    • Psychiatric malpractice
    • Unnecessary surgery or medical procedures
    • Surgical errors, including anesthesia, wrong site, and postoperative negligence
    • Defective medical devices
    • Spinal cord injuries
    • Chiropractic negligence
    • Dental malpractice
    • Premature discharge
    • Poor follow-up or aftercare
  • The Medical Malpractice Lawsuit Process

    If we take your case, our Sarasota Morgan & Morgan team will use every resource to achieve the best possible outcome. We will:

    Investigate Your Case: A medical malpractice attorney will review the facts of your case, determine the extent of your injuries, interview witnesses, and work with medical experts to prove that you were a victim of medical malpractice.

    File a Lawsuit: After the investigation is complete, your attorney may draft a complaint with the court. The party being sued will then respond to the allegations within your lawsuit. Next, your case will go into the discovery phase, where the doctor or healthcare professional may be required to testify at a deposition. These medical professionals will answer questions under oath regarding the medical services that were provided to you.

    Review Settlement Offers: You may be offered a settlement before going to trial. If you receive a settlement offer, your attorney will help you determine if it provides adequate compensation for your case. If not, your attorney may negotiate on your behalf for a larger settlement, using evidence and expert reports to demonstrate the full extent of your injuries.

    Litigate Your Lawsuit: If negotiation efforts fail, your attorney will prepare your case for trial. The medical malpractice team at Morgan & Morgan is made up of experienced trial lawyers with a successful track record in the courtroom.

  • What Can I Recover in a Medical Malpractice Lawsuit?

    By filing a medical malpractice lawsuit, you may be able to recover compensation for damages that include:

    Medical Expenses: Florida law states that you may be eligible to recover compensation for past and future medical bills, as well as rehabilitation expenses.

    Lost Wages: If injuries from medical malpractice prevented you from working, you may be able to recover a financial award for lost wages. Also, if your injuries have diminished your abilities to perform your job duties, you may be able to receive compensation for your reduced earning capacity.

    Pain and Suffering: Medical malpractice can result in significant pain and suffering. And while we realize that it’s difficult to put a price on pain, the Sarasota Morgan & Morgan team will work hard to get the compensation you deserve.

    Punitive Damages: Sometimes medical professionals engage in particularly reckless or negligent conduct. In these cases, a court may award punitive damages in addition to those above, both to punish the offender and discourage other healthcare professionals from engaging in similar risky behavior.
