Medical Malpractice Lawyers in Pembroke Pines, FL

Skilled Injury Lawyers Represent Clients Harmed by Medical Malpractice in Pembroke Pines and Throughout South Florida

When a medical procedure or treatment goes wrong, the results can be devastating. Although there is no way to completely eliminate the risk of a bad outcome in any medical situation, when your harm was caused by the negligence or recklessness of your own doctor or trusted medical professional, you may have the right to take action and hold that person accountable for medical malpractice. Medical malpractice in Pembroke Pines occurs when a doctor or medical professional fails to perform in accordance with the established standard of care developed by the medical community based on the facts of the case, including the discipline involved and the type of illness or injury.

At Lawlor, White & Murphey, we know that doctors, like lawyers, can never guarantee a perfect outcome. Despite this, medical professionals are not entitled to use this fact to avoid responsibility when their own negligence has caused a patient harm. Medical malpractice cases almost always involve a highly complex analysis and require consultation with specialists and medical experts to confirm that the medical professional in your case failed to act in accordance with acceptable protocols. Our medical malpractice team has the experience, cutting-edge technological resources and contacts with respected specialists in the Pembroke Pines medical community necessary to succeed in these cases. As South Florida residents ourselves, we have a passion for keeping our hospitals safe from negligent medical professionals.

What constitutes “damages” in a medical malpractice case will vary. Some medical malpractice cases can cause the victim’s existing condition to worsen so that more invasive treatments will be required—or so that treatment is no longer effective at all.

Frequently Asked Questions About Pembroke Pines Medical Malpractice Claims

FAQ: Can my dentist be held responsible for medical malpractice in Pembroke Pines?

Medical malpractice cases frequently involve responsible parties who are not actually medical doctors, so dentists can also be held responsible for malpractice in Pembroke Pines. In dental malpractice cases, the relevant standard of care involves examining what a trained dentist practicing in a similar case under similar circumstances would have reasonably done in the situation.

FAQ: Medical malpractice cases sound expensive. How much will it cost to retain your legal services in my case?

Medical malpractice cases are, by their nature, expensive. But you don’t have to worry about the cost because we handle all expenses of litigating the case, and only take a fee if we recover compensation in your case. This means that we handle the expense of retaining the medical experts necessary to confirm that your doctor may have committed malpractice, and will handle all aspects of negotiating on your behalf and litigating your case in court if necessary before we even receive a fee. Because of this, you can rest assured that if we take on your case, we believe we can recover compensation and hold the negligent medical provider accountable for you, and will work tirelessly to get the best possible results.
