Last week on the blog we discussed a case where our firm was able to recover $750,000 on behalf of the estate of a man who died when he was improperly monitored while in the hospital. This type of improper monitoring or mistake may be better known to some as hospital negligence. Recovering damages like this can be important for medical malpractice victims and their families. Not only can this compensation help cover medical expenses, funeral costs and lost wages, but it can also serve as a strong reprimand to those who act negligently while caring for others.
Tragically, medical malpractice is more common than it should be in Florida. Despite advanced technology and knowledgeable medical professionals, carelessness, inattentiveness and fatigue cause mistakes that can lead to injuries, disfigurement, disability and even death. When the negligence of another causes you harm, you should carefully consider your legal options to determine how best to proceed in an effort to protect your best interests.
Typically, though, medical malpractice victims only get one shot at proving their claim and recovering the compensation they deserve. For this reason, many victims and their families, similar to the estate in the case discussed last week, may find it beneficial to acquire legal assistance. A competent attorney will know how to apply the law to a particular set of facts, and can develop legal arguments that support the claim. These legal professionals can aggressively represent victims and their families during settlement negotiations and litigation.
Our law firm has a track record of successfully advocating for our clients. We cannot guarantee that a particular claim will lead to the recovery of any certain amount of compensation, and we cannot even guarantee that a claim will be successful. However, we can ensure our clients that we are passionate about helping them and fighting for a just resolution to their situation. With that in mind, we work with our clients to make sure a legal strategy is tailored to their specific situation and with their best interests at the forefront.
