As was discussed last week on the blog, Florida is seeing a shortage of physicians and this shortage may be leaving some with inadequate access to healthcare. However, even those who are able to see a doctor in a timely fashion may be subjected to poor and downright dangerous treatment. Overworked and tired medical professionals are prone to mistakes in diagnosing patients, performing operations, and prescribing medications. Such situations could lead to serious injuries and, perhaps, even death.
Floridians who suffer harm at the hands of a negligent doctor or nurse may be forced to face a long period of time fraught with challenges. They may be left with crushing medical debt from prolonged treatment, they might have to cope with the knowledge that they have a decreased likelihood of surviving their ailment, and they may be left with physical and emotional scarring. Though there may be little help available to physically heal those who have been wronged, a medical malpractice lawsuit may provide compensation to cover financial losses and ease pain and suffering.
As great as that may sound, winning a medical malpractice case is not always easy. Zealous defense attorneys work hard to protect their clients, attempting to show that they were not at fault for a victim's injuries. Therefore, medical malpractice victims need an equally diligent and aggressive advocate on their side. The legal team at Ford, Dean & Rotundo is proud to stand up for victims of negligence and fight for what they deserve.
To get a better grasp on the law and how it might apply to your situation, you may want to discuss your matter with an attorney. However, no two attorneys are the same, so it might behoove you to do some research and seek out a firm that will be a good fit with your best interests.
