Tampa Medical Malpractice Experts
Medical malpractice is one of the more horrifying personal injury cases a client can face. Sometimes, even the best medical practitioners make errors, but it’s no consolation for a patient that has suffered at the hands of that mistake. As a patient, you’re entrusting that the doctor can perform their specific procedure and that you’ll not end up worse off than before you started. The shattering of trust between patient and physician can have a long-lasting impact on a patient’s ability to ever trust medical care in the future when they will need it.

How should you pursue a medical malpractice case?
These complex cases create additional layers of work needed before a case can be filed. At the time of filing, your attorney must certify they have conducted a thorough investigation of the case and that it warrants being filed, along with a written opinion from a third-party expert. Since many plaintiffs are unable to afford the costs of an investigation to understand the merits of the case, law firms that work on a contingency basis are the most common firm to handle a medical malpractice case. Our attorneys are experts in medical malpractice and know what to look for and the proper ways to handle an investigation into your case, and we offer a free consultation to advise you on your best first steps. Time is not on your side in a medical malpractice case. Although Florida’s filing times are generous, the longer you wait to file a claim, the more difficult things become when seeking evidence and witnesses to prove your claim and help you recover the damages you may be entitled to.
