"We Are So Thankful for The Moody Law Firm

Recently I went to Attorney Dan P Moody for advice regarding a procedure performed at a local Medical facility.  In preparation for the procedure, the nurse administered an IV needle incorrectly... I asked Dan Moody if I had a case of malpractice. He was very informative.  He explained the steps necessary to proceed with litigation.  The costs I would incur and the time it would require did not warrant any further action.  His patient, professional manner would encourage me to recommend his service to anyone I know.

The Healthcare Industry in Lakeland

There are more than a dozen nursing homes and assisted living facilities in Lakeland. In addition, the city has hospitals, rehab facilities, pharmacies, medical centers, and private practitioners here to serve the 110,000 residents of Lakeland.

Although most doctors, nurses, and other medical professionals do their best to provide a good standard of care, medical negligence does occur. When this puts the health and safety of a patient at risk and causes injury, victims have a right to file a medical malpractice case. This very specific type of personal injury case calls for the help of a firm with a track record of success in helping victims collect the restitution they deserve.

Florida Medical Malpractice Statutes of Limitations

*There are some exceptions to this rule:

1. The statute of limitations may be extended to four years if the medical malpractice was not immediately discovered.
2. If fraud was involved, the victim has two years from the date of discovery of fraud to file a medical malpractice lawsuit. However, the case would need to be filed within seven years of the initial date of malpractice.
3. Medical malpractice claims involving minors can be filed within two years of learning of the malpractice; this holds true until the child is eight years old.
