Medical Malpractice & Wrongful Death
Injuries as a result of complications from medical malpractice can occur anywhere medical care and treatment are provided, even your own home. At Tripp Law Firm we have experience with medical issues involving reviewing records, medical testimony, and complex medical evidence. In addition, our attorneys work with a network of doctors, surgeons, nurses, and other medical experts to assist and testify in a medical malpractice cases.
Medical malpractice occurs when a negligent act or omission by a doctor, surgeon or other medical professional results in damage, harm, or even death to a patient. Negligence by a medical professional could include an error or mistake in a diagnosis, treatment or illness management. If such medical negligence results in injury sustained to the patient, a medical malpractice case could arise against the doctor, surgeon, or other medical provider if his or her actions deviated from generally accepted standards of practice; against the hospital or facility for improper care, such as problems with medications, sanitation or nursing care; or against local, state or federal agencies that operate hospital facilities.
Florida Medical malpractice laws are designed to protect patients’ rights and allow them to pursue compensation if they are injured as the result of the negligence of a medical professional. However, malpractice suits are often complex and very costly for our firm and you to pursue.
While theoretically, you can seek compensation for any injury caused by negligence, regardless of its seriousness, time and money make it unrealistic to sue for an injury that is minor or heals quickly. Therefore, if you believe you have a medical malpractice claim, it is important to consult with Tripp Law Firm who can help you determine whether your claim is worthy of pursuing. At Tripp Law Firm we have a network of doctors, surgeons, and medical professionals who can assist us in making this determination.
