Medical Malpractice Attorneys in Florida
Over 80 Years of Combined Legal Experience
When you visit a medical provider—whether a doctor, dentist, pediatrician, specialist, or emergency room nurse—you expect to receive adequate treatment and care. Unfortunately, this does not always happen. Like anyone, medical providers can and do make mistakes. Unlike everyone, however, medical providers and facilities are held to a high standard of care, meaning they can be held liable for mistakes when those mistakes should not have happened and they resulted in injury, death, or harm.
At Michles & Booth, we represent clients in a variety of medical malpractice claims. This is a complex area of law, one which requires the knowledge and skill of a proven legal team. If you believe you or a loved one was the victim of medical negligence, reach out to our Florida medical malpractice lawyers as soon as possible for a free consultation. We are prepared to put over 80 years of combined experience and a proven track record of results on your side.
What Constitutes Medical Malpractice?
Doctors, nurses, hospitals, and other medical providers and facilities owe their patients a duty of care. This does not mean they are not allowed to make any mistakes whatsoever. It does mean, however, that medical providers can be held liable when they make mistakes that other competent/qualified medical professionals would not have made. Generally speaking, this is known as negligence.
Medical malpractice encompasses both negligent and, less-commonly, wrongful actions of medical providers. Some examples include:
- Failure to diagnose
- Delayed diagnosis
- Failure to treat
- Surgical errors
- Anesthesia errors
- Birth injuries
- Nursing home abuse/negligence
- Incorrect medication dosage
- Wrong medication
- Pharmacy errors
- Laboratory mistakes
- Misreading/ignoring lab results
- Failure to take patient history into account
- Premature discharge
- Negligent/improper aftercare
- Dental negligence/malpractice
If you believe you have a medical malpractice claim, it is imperative that you speak to a qualified attorney as soon as possible, as there are time limits to file your claim.
Work with a Highly Experienced Team
At Michles & Booth, we dedicate a large portion of our practice to representing victims of medical negligence and their loved ones. Our founding attorneys, Marcus Michles and Rainey Booth, both began their careers defending medical professionals and their insurance providers. Now, they use the extensive experience they gained on the “other side” of the courtroom to develop solid cases on behalf of injured individuals.
Our firm has in-house investigators and a board-certified medical doctor on staff. Together with our legal team, they are able to not only identify how an injury/death occurred (and who is liable) but also the full extent of the injuries and damages, including how the victim/victim’s family will be affected in the future.
Our Florida medical malpractice lawyers have recovered some of the largest medical negligence jury verdicts in North Florida. We have an authoritative knowledge of the law and practical experience in the courtroom, both of which we are prepared to put to work for you.
