Hollywood Medical Malpractice Lawyers

Dedicated Medical Malpractice Lawyers Fight for Justice Against Negligent Medical Professionals in Broward County and South Florida

Some studies show that medical malpractice causes more deaths in the United States each year than car accidents—and while this statistic alone is shocking, this does not even account for the millions of malpractice victims who suffer from the consequences of medical malpractice in their everyday lives for the rest of their lives. Negligent medical care can worsen an existing condition, create the need for painful and unnecessary treatment or even leave victims suffering from new and painful conditions that can last a lifetime. At Lawlor, White & Murphey, our Hollywood medical malpractice lawyers want to keep Hollywood and the surrounding South Florida communities safe from negligent doctors and medical professionals.

At some point, all of us will have to rely upon the skills and knowledge of our doctors—without formal medical training, we really have no alternative than to trust that our doctors will take their professional duties seriously and provide the best care possible. When doctors fail in this duty, we feel a responsibility to help you hold them accountable for that failure, both to make sure you receive the financial compensation that you deserve and to keep others safe from suffering similar consequences.

Frequently Asked Questions About Medical Malpractice Claims in Hollywood, Florida

Why is timing so important in a Hollywood, Florida medical malpractice case?

While it is important to begin preparing any personal injury case as soon as possible in order to preserve all relevant evidence to make the strongest possible case, time is especially critical in medical malpractice cases. Because of perceived abuses in the system, and to prevent frivolous lawsuits, the Florida legislature has created strict timelines that apply in medical malpractice cases. For example, we only have a two-year period from the date that you knew of the medical malpractice, or should have known of the malpractice, in order to have your case evaluated by other medical experts and prepare and serve an affidavit to this effect on the allegedly negligent doctor who caused you harm. Even if you do not discover the malpractice for years, Florida law places a firm time limit of four years on your ability to file a medical malpractice case. This may seem like a lot of time, but medical malpractice cases can be extremely complicated and do, by their nature, take time.

Is there a cap on the amount of compensatory damages I can recover in a medical malpractice case?

Florida never capped the amount of economic damages that could be recovered in a medical malpractice case but did previously cap the amount of non-economic (i.e., pain and suffering) damages available at $500,000 in most cases. However, the Florida Supreme Court recently struck down this cap as unconstitutional, so the cap no longer applies unless additional actions are taken to reinstate the cap.
