Florida Medical Malpractice Lawyers for 40 Years
When physicians and other health providers violate their oath to “first, do no harm,” then victims who lose their lives or good health deserve the full measure of justice that our legal system promises.
Few cases are more emotionally-charged than those of medical malpractice and healthcare negligence. It is easy to see why. As patients, we rely on healthcare professionals to treat our injuries and illnesses. Victims of negligent physicians have had their lives destroyed or severely damaged by the very people they trusted for protection.
Medical malpractice among doctors who have violated their duty and failed to provide accepted standards of care can take many forms, including:
- Failure to diagnose or mistakes in diagnoses
- Failure to treat or improper treatment
- Failure to warn a patient of known risks
- Surgical errors or complications
- Birth-related injuries such as brain damage
- Prescription drug errors
Medical Malpractice Attorneys Who Know the Ropes
When a physician commits medical malpractice, victims often experience a significant emotional reaction along with the physical injuries they suffer. Instead of receiving treatment for a health problem, they may find themselves facing greater injuries that require even more extensive treatment. As they rack up expensive medical bills and are forced to take time off from work to recover, stress further prolongs the healing process.
So it is easy to understand the value of a medical malpractice law firm who has more than 40 years’ experience helping thousands of clients secure compensation to pay for medical expenses, pain and suffering, and lost wages due to medical malpractice.
When you understand the complexity of the litigation process, it is also easy to see why medical malpractice cases are among the most difficult to pursue. At Searcy Denney, our Florida medical malpractice lawyers marshal an enormous array of strategic skill and solid evidence, bolstered by unshakable testimony from expert witnesses. They must explain complicated and confusing medical issues to untrained judges and jurors. In the end, they must prove that a healthcare provider deviated from the acceptable standard of care required by the medical profession . . . and that’s a large order.
Medical Malpractice Law Firm That Draws on All Its Resources
Not every attorney or law firm has the skill and experience to meet this burden of proof. Not every medical malpractice lawyer has the financial ability to keep pace with the resources of health care providers and their insurance companies. Not every attorney or law firm is driven by its passion for justice, or is backed by a solid track record and a national reputation.
But in three and a half decades of representing victims of medical malpractice, our seasoned team of Florida medical malpractice attorneys, investigators, insurance and healthcare experts are as skilled at gaining fair settlements as they are at earning justice in the trial courts. Just a few examples:
- A $2 million settlement for incompetent surgeries, missed diagnoses and delays that left a patient wheelchair bound with loss of bodily functions and permanent pain.
- A $4.24 million recovery for a physician’s repeated failure to diagnose pancreatic cancer that proved fatal to a 45 year old.
- A confidential settlement on behalf of a four-year-old girl whose doctor failed to diagnose or treat the meningitis that killed her.
- Numerous recoveries for parents of newborns who sustained brain damage during delivery because of a physician’s negligence.
