West Palm Beach Medical Malpractice Lawyers

Experienced Attorneys Represent Medical Malpractice Victims in West Palm Beach and Throughout Florida

You never expect to fall victim to a medical mistake. While most medical procedures carry the risk of side effects or ineffectiveness, it is an entirely different issue when the medical provider is the cause. If a medical provider was negligent with your care, then they may also be responsible for the additional costs you have incurred.

Lawlor, White & Murphey have been diligently working to protect the rights of West Palm Beach, FL residents. Despite Florida’s complicated legal system, especially as it applies to medical malpractice cases, our team continues to stand up for our client’s rights. In a difficult time when it feels like the insurance companies and your medical care providers have forgotten about you, we will step in and advocate for your rights.

An experienced medical malpractice lawyer can help you explore your options following a medical mistake. 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.

How Can Lawlor, White & Murphey Help With Your Medical Malpractice Case?

When a medical mistake occurs, you are the one left to deal with the damages. Because hospitals and physicians are often backed by large insurance companies and entire teams of legal representation, it is important that you have the right team on your side. Lawlor, White & Murphey have years of experience fighting for our client’s rights.

Settlement offers are a common occurrence with medical malpractice cases because large organizations would generally prefer to cover up the mistake. While settlement offers can save everyone time and legal fees, our team is fully prepared to turn down any offer that does not appropriately cover your damages. You may be eligible for the following compensation in a West Palm Beach, FL medical malpractice case:

  • Medical costs (current and anticipated)
