Verdicts and Settlements Achieved for Victims of Medical Malpractice

Mr. Moody and his team of attorneys have a proven track record of securing fair compensation for clients, including several multi-million dollar recoveries. Here are some financial verdicts and settlements our Lakeland, FL, law firm won for clients injured due to medical malpractice:
Sad doctor


The doctors and nurses failed to recognize and appreciate the gravity of the patient’s condition and treat her in a timely manner. A $9,500,000 recovery was obtained for the client and her husband.

man in wheelchair


Because of a delay in diagnosis and treatment, our client became paralyzed from his chest down and confined to a wheelchair. Moody Law recovered $3,050,000 for the client.

newborn baby


We held the doctors and the hospital responsible for birth-related injuries due to delayed diagnosis and failure to resuscitate the infant.

Oral surgeons operating on patient


We held oral surgeons responsible for the improper use of anesthesia, which caused the partial paralysis of a 66-year-old man. We reached a medical malpractice settlement of $2,000,000.

sleeping baby


Following a birth-related brain injury caused by failure to diagnose and implement a caesarian section, our client collected a medical malpractice award of $1,700,000.

Man in hospital bed


This medical malpractice case involved a young man with a growth on his skin. The growth was removed by a surgeon. This was a medical error, as radiation or chemo should have been ordered. Sadly, our client died of cancer as his medical malpractice claim was progressing. A settlement was reached pre-trial.



An ultrasound diagnosis that a child was going to be born with severe deformities was not properly disclosed to our client, resulting in a wrongful life claim and medical malpractice lawsuit. Mr. Moody traveled from Florida to the University of California, San Francisco, to meet with a birth injury expert, who was retained to testify. Our client's financial award is believed to be the largest in Florida for this kind of case.

Senior citizen in wheelchair


A senior citizen went to a local medical clinic presenting classic stroke symptoms. However, the doctor on staff sent him home. Our client then suffered a devastating stroke. Moody Law helped our client receive a pre-trial settlement of $600,000.

The Healthcare Industry Is Booming in Lakeland, FL

There are more than a dozen nursing homes and assisted living facilities in Lakeland. In addition, the city has a number of 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 claim. 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.

"I recently had the pleasure of working with Moody Law and was thoroughly impressed with their exceptional level of expertise, professionalism, and dedication. From the very beginning, their team was attentive and responsive to my needs, always taking the time to explain complex legal terminology and processes in a way that I could easily understand.

Florida Medical Malpractice

*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.

Client meeting
"Mr. Moody came highly recommended by personal friends who are attorneys that practice in other areas... From the initial consultation we felt as if we were part of the family. Every detail was explained up front and throughout the entire process the staff was quick to respond to questions and there were many. Through their effort we received a fair settlement that was much greater than the lowball offer the insurance company initially presented which didnt even cover the associated medical bills." BIll Moffatt
