While there are more than 80,000 lawyers in Florida, there are only a small number of lawyers who specialize in medical malpractice law. Most people may not be aware that the Florida Bar has certified lawyers less than 2% of Florida lawyers as specialists in civil trial law which includes medical malpractice. In addition, there are even fewer Florida lawyers who are also a licensed medical doctor.
As Orlando medical malpractice lawyers, we offer both a board certified trial lawyer and a medical doctor/lawyer. Along with a critical care registered nurse who serves as medical case manager, clients receive the medical and legal expertise necessary to take on the “medical giants.” People should understand what they are up against when they are considering a medical malpractice lawsuit. No other area of law may be as complex and confusing when it comes to seeking justice for injury or death.
Unless the patient has a medical malpractice lawyer with a long track record of success in dealing with these tactics, the patient may not even have a fighting chance for a just result. Indeed, we believe so strongly that the selection of a medical malpractice lawyer may lose the case years before it ever goes to trial that we have written a book to help consumers select the right lawyer. We continue to make the book, Seeking Justice: An Insider’s Guide for the Injured, available at no charge.
