Tampa Medical Malpractice Attorneys
Help for Victims of Medical Negligence
Medical malpractice can occur whenever a doctor, hospital or a medical
facility somehow mistreats, misdiagnoses or incompetently performs some
type of medical procedure. Thousands of surgeries are performed every
day, in addition to numerous other medical procedures.
If done incorrectly or negligently, these can cause severe and irreversible
injuries. A medical professional has a responsibility to take the utmost
care in the performance of his/her duties. If standard practices and care
are not taken, accidents and injuries can occur.
Common Causes of Medical Malpractice
Some of the common reasons for medical malpractice include:
- Incorrect Medications
- Inadequate Training
- Poor Equipment Maintenance

area are normally severe, the resources needed to properly investigate
the facts behind the malpractice are many. At Smith & Stallworth,
