  • How a Tampa Medical Malpractice Attorney Can Help

    Recovering Compensation

    If you or a loved one has been injured due to medical negligence, a lawsuit can provide an opportunity to recover compensation for your losses. Depending on the details of your case, a medical malpractice attorney may be able to help you seek compensation for past and future medical bills, lost income, physical pain, and emotional suffering.

    In some cases, your attorney can recover compensation by negotiating a settlement with the medical professional’s insurance company. If these negotiations do not lead to a fair settlement, your malpractice attorney may file a lawsuit against the doctor, hospital, or other healthcare professional that allegedly committed the malpractice.

    Use of Medical Experts in Malpractice Lawsuits

    The Tampa medical malpractice attorneys at Morgan & Morgan routinely work with medical experts. In a malpractice lawsuit, a medical expert serves two purposes. First, the expert evaluates the treatment the patient received so that the expert can explain to the jury how the doctor violated the accepted standard of care of the medical profession.

    Second, the medical expert offers testimony regarding the damages the patient suffered as a result of the malpractice. The credibility of the expert witness is a crucial component of a successful malpractice case. Not only must the expert witness be a respected authority in the medical field at issue, but the testifying expert must be able to explain complicated issues in clear, concise language that the jury will understand.

    • $1,100,000 settlement recovered on behalf of a married father who two died from complications of a tropical disease after he returned home from an overseas trip
  • When Does Medical Malpractice Occur?

    A doctor or medical professional has a duty to adhere to the accepted standard of care established by the medical profession. In a medical malpractice lawsuit, this standard is determined by evaluating how a reasonably prudent doctor would have acted in a similar situation. Medical malpractice occurs when a doctor’s conduct falls short of the standard of care resulting in injury to the patient.

    Medical malpractice can occur in a number of circumstances. Types of common medical malpractice include:

    • Surgical Error
    • Delayed Diagnosis and Misdiagnosis
    • OB/GYN Negligence
    • Ordering an Improper Test
    • Hospital Malpractice
    • Plastic Surgery Malpractice
    • Failure to Accurately Interpret Tests
    • Failure to Listen to their Patient
    • Cancer Misdiagnosis
    • Postoperative Negligence
    • Misread X-Rays and Ultrasounds
    • Anesthesia Errors
    • Medication Errors
    • Emergency Room Malpractice
    • Failure to Examine the Patient’s Medical History
