Medical Malpractice Lawyers Fort Lauderdale

When your medical care ends up causing you harm instead of treating an illness or injury, you need the help of a skilled lawyer who understands the intricacies and complications involved in Florida medical malpractice cases. Doctors and other medical professionals are not expected to be miracle workers, but they are expected to perform their jobs exercising a level of skill, responsibility, and knowledge that is reasonable based upon generally accepted medical standards. You may not have the in-depth medical training necessary to know exactly what went wrong in your case, but it is important to understand that you have the right to hold medical professionals accountable for negligent care that causes you to suffer unnecessarily.

At Lawlor, White & Murphey, we understand that there is no amount of money that can make up for the pain and suffering caused by a serious and long-lasting injury, but we fight tirelessly to hold the medical professionals who have caused your injury responsible for their actions. The skill and experience possessed by a lawyer is particularly important in complicated medical malpractice cases, and our lawyers have decades’ worth of experience successfully helping clients recover compensation in these cases so that they can move on with their lives.

Common Issues Driving South Florida Medical Malpractice Claims & Lawsuits

Medical malpractice that may provide grounds for recovering compensation from the medical provider include:

  • Emergency room errors
  • Surgical errors, such as leaving equipment in the patient or operating on the wrong body part
  • Misdiagnosis
  • Failure to properly identify or diagnose a condition
  • Prescription drug errors
  • Birth injuries
  • Unreasonable delays in diagnosing a condition
