Nursing Home Negligence
Our law firm handles claims of nursing home negligence and abuse. Often nursing homes are not staffed appropriately for the number of residents they must care for and supervise. If you have a loved one that has not received appropriate care in a nursing home resulting in a fall, bed sore or other injury please let us investigate your potential claim.
Medication errors often have catastrophic results, especially when patients are given medications that they are allergic to or are contra-indicated to treat their condition.
If you or a loved one has been the victim of a medication error that caused injury or death we have a team of medical and pharmacy experts that can build a solid case, and obtain the compensation you deserve for the injury or death caused by the medication error.
Negligence of radiologists failing to correctly read a MRI, CT Scan and/or X-ray can lead to serious injury and death. We handle cases involving the failure of a radiologist to correctly identify a cancerous mass, failing to identify a hole in the intestine and/or bladder after surgery and failing to correctly diagnose an acute appendix as well as other errors.
Radiologists are now doing procedures in addition to reading diagnostic studies. If a radiology procedure is not done correctly or was not necessary, we can make sure you are fully compensated for your damages. Florida only has a two year statute of limitations to bring a medical malpractice claim subject to some exceptions so you need to act now by calling us to start the investigation of your claim.

It takes a great deal of experience to determine whether the poor surgical outcome was a known complication of the procedure or whether the surgical complication could have been avoided. We have a team of experts in general surgery, infectious disease and other specialties to help us decide whether a valid claim for medical malpractice exists.

Wrongful death is when a person is killed due to the fault of another, whether it is a defective product, automobile crash, truck crash motorcycle crash, medical malpractice, failure to provide adequate security, or any other situation where a loss of life has occurred that could have been avoided if others had been more careful.
