Orlando Medical Malpractice Lawyer
Uncovering Medical Mistakes
We have seen too many clients who have needlessly suffered severe and tragic injury as a result of medical neglect by Orlando doctors; as well as, physicians and hospitals throughout Florida. We’ve got to put a stop to medical malpractice. We know that you have questions and we want to provide answers. You want to better understand what happened. Could your health care providers have prevented the terrible outcome from happening? You want to know whether someone committed malpractice. You need to consider what can be done to assist you and your family. Speaking with our Medical Doctor and Lawyer and our Board Certified Civil Trial Specialist allows you to benefit from our wealth of knowledge and resources.
For over 25 years our firm has represented clients hurt by careless acts of a doctor, nurse, hospital, dentist, chiropractor, podiatrist, and other healthcare providers.

Our firm handles a variety of claims throughout the State of Florida, including those arising from:
- Missed diagnosis

- Lack of informed consent

Did You Have To Suffer That Harm?
Clients have come to us and shared that their spouse had chest pain, shortness of breath and went to the hospital only to be told “everything’s fine.” Tragically, these clients lost their spouse as a result of the failure to diagnose a heart attack. Negligence or carelessness by a doctor or hospital is a special type of personal injury claim called “medical malpractice.” Medical malpractice is more common than you think.
These claims are complex and require a high level of legal and medical expertise. The insurance companies and lawyers who defend doctors have become experts at creating “excuses” and “patient blaming” to avoid taking responsibility for even the most blatant cases of patient neglect. These claims involve a “battle of experts.” That is, each side must hire qualified doctors to testify as experts about the important issues involved. This is no place for an inexperienced lawyer.
Most consumers have little knowledge of the rights that have been stripped away from them. For example: a Florida doctor fails to pay attention to a simple wound infection on a child’s foot. The physician continues to ignore signs of a worsening condition over the following weeks. The condition later requires the amputation of a large part of the child’s foot. That child can no longer receive the full value of her loss. As a result of lobbying efforts on behalf of insurance companies, hospitals, and the Florida Medical Association, that child can only receive a limited amount for the permanent changes to her life, for her pain and suffering, and for her disability.
If that same child lost her leg in a car accident, there would be no arbitrary limitation. Doctors and hospitals are treated better than the rest of us. They are no longer accountable for all the harm they cause. Insurance and healthcare are￼big business, and politicians have received millions of dollars in campaign contributions from both of these special interest groups. In these cases, the field is not level. Without a recognized specialist to handle your case, you may have little chance for a successful outcome.
How To Give Yourself A Fighting Chance
All the evidence in the world matters little if the people who make up your jury do not believe in lawsuits against doctors. You need a lawyer who has successfully “picked juries” in order to give yourself a fighting chance. In addition to conducting jury selection in accident and injury cases, our attorneys have conducted jury selection in medical malpractice cases resulting in multi-million dollar verdicts. When the insurance companies, the doctors, and the hospitals refuse to do the right thing, you need a lawyer who can select a jury and try the case to verdict! You deserve nothing less.
