Last week, we talked about the potential doctor shortage Florida could see in the coming years. Though a doctor shortage does not necessarily mean you will be subjected to medical malpractice, it might increase the risk of being treated by an overworked and fatigued medical professional. When you are treated by a stressed, tired doctor or nurse, harmful errors may occur.

If you have been injured by hospital negligence, then you may benefit from the services of a legal professional. Whether you were harmed by a misdiagnosis, a failure to diagnose, a surgical error, a medication mishap, or any other act or inaction that falls below the applicable standard of care, an experienced attorney may be able to advise you of your legal rights and your potential to recover compensation.

Aggressive legal teams that truly care for their clients, like the legal team at Ford, Dean & Rotundo, P.A., do everything they can to reach a favorable outcome. Though no outcome can be guaranteed, dedicated legal Florida attorneys stand ready to help you assess your case and put your interests first. This means utilizing the evidence, the law, and witnesses to support your position as fully as possible.

Regardless of whether you want to settle your claim out of court or take the matter to trial, strong legal representation may allow you to recover the compensation you need to acquire much needed medical care and recoup lost wages. Additionally, if a claim succeeds, then you can take pride in your ability to hold negligent professionals accountable and to put a stop to negligent medical practices.
