Medical Malpractice Lawyer in Miami
Doctors must attend school for years before they can actually even touch a real patient. The reason they must go through must rigorous training before working with people is because the human body is exceptionally delicate and complex. Unfortunately, even when doctors are properly trained, they can still make mistakes. While the mistakes are usually minor, they are sometimes dangerous, even deadly. If you have fallen victim to a dangerous doctor mistake, you may be eligible to file a medical malpractice lawsuit against the doctor or other medical staff member who harmed you. When you are ready to take action, call a skilled Miami medical malpractice injury attorney from the Law Offices of Gilbert and Smallman.
Malpractice can be a result of improperly trained medical professionals, overworked hospital staff, pure carelessness, greed and more. Whatever the cause though, what really matters is the outcome of the mistake. If a hospital mix up causes you to get an x-ray on the wrong area of your body, you will most likely not be eligible to file suit. On the other hand, if a mix up resulted in surgery being performed on the wrong body part, you most certainly are deserving of compensation for your pain, emotional suffering, medical expenses, time out of work and more. A Miami personal injury lawyer can help you recognize whether or not you have a viable medical malpractice case.
Some of the most common medical malpractice suits include birth defects, nursing home abuse, wrong diagnosis, improper anesthesia, and surgical accidents. If you or a loved one has suffered from any of these common accidents, please call a Miami personal injury attorney today to discuss your case.
