Medical Malpractice Lawsuits
Health care providers have a legal and professional obligation to perform their duties to an accepted standard of care. If it can be shown that a patient was injured or killed as a result of an individual's failure to perform his or her duty to the established standard of care, it may be possible to file a medical malpractice claim. Health care providers are expected to take reasonable and prudent actions in the care of their patients. Errors in judgment, indifference, fatigue, malicious intentions, use of mind altering substances, and a lack of adequate training can all contribute to a preventable medical error. If you or a loved one has suffered at the hands of a negligent health care provider, you could be legally entitled to compensation. Central Florida residents looking for a medical malpractice lawyer in Central Florida and Polk County, including Lakeland, Bartow, Winter Haven, and Haines City, can depend on a legal representative from Moody Law for legal counsel.
Types of Medical Malpractice
A Central Florida medical malpractice lawyer from our Lakeland office – serving Winter Haven, Bartow, and all of Polk County – can review your case and help determine your claim eligibility. The personal injury attorneys at Moody Law will aggressively seek compensation appropriate for your pain and suffering and all related expenses. Our experienced lawyers are not afraid to take claims to court if it proves necessary to obtain fair and just financial compensation for our clients. Among the more common types of medical malpractice that we handle include:
Surgery is inherently risky. However, a doctor can be held liable for his or her actions if it can be shown that a preventable surgical error occurred as a result of the doctor's negligence. Operating on the wrong organ, removing the wrong limb, and leaving surgical tools inside a patient's body are examples of egregious surgical errors that can cause serious harm to a patient.
Emergency Room Error
Many emergency rooms are understaffed by overworked physicians and inexperienced nurses, which can often lead to tragedy. If the negligent actions of an emergency care provider caused you to suffer or led to the death of a loved one, we will work to ensure the liable parties are held responsible for their actions.
At Moody Law, we understand how devastating a birth injury can be to a family. If your child has suffered a birth injury, such as one that causes cerebral palsy or Erb's Palsy, or an injury related to shoulder dystocia, a medical malpractice lawyer from our firm can help. Many birth injuries result in permanent disabilities that require long-term medical care. We can help ensure that you receive the compensation that you're entitled to in such cases.
Doctor and Hospital Negligence
If a doctor's carelessness causes a patient to be injured, the doctor can be held liable for medical malpractice. Hospitals are responsible for hiring qualified and competent doctors, nurses, anesthesiologists and medical technicians. In instances of doctor neglect, it may be possible to hold the hospital liable. A medical malpractice lawyer from Moody Law can review your claim and help determine which parties can be held accountable for negligence.
The effects can be devastating if an anesthesiologist administers an incorrect dosage of sedative or fails to closely monitor a patient who is under anesthesia. If a loved one has been injured or suffered a wrongful death as a result of an anesthesia error, we can assist you in seeking just restitution.
Drugs can pose a significant risk to the health of an individual if they are incorrectly prescribed. Patients place their well-being in the hands of doctors when they seek medical attention. If a doctor fails in his or her duty and prescribes an injurious drug, the victim has legal recourse.
