Practitioner Malpractice in Tampa

Smith & Stallworth are Skilled Malpractice Lawyers in Florida

When you visit a doctor, you place your trust in their training and experience and expect them to help improve your health. That is why it can be devastating when an individual suffers additional injury or illness due to doctor negligence. Doctors across the nation take a ceremonial oath upon receiving their license, swearing to practice medicine ethically and honestly. Smith & Stallworth are dedicated to protecting your rights as a patient and seeking justice during this difficult time.

Types of Doctor Negligence

Doctor negligence can include delayed diagnosis, misdiagnosis, failure to diagnose, prescription error, and more. Patients who are not diagnosed correctly or in a timely manner could become seriously ill or suffer from wrongful death. The same goes for patients who are prescribed the wrong medication, or the wrong dosage.

If you or a loved one has been the victim of doctor negligence or any other form of medical malpractice, call Smith & Stallworth, Attorneys at Law right away for the aggressive representation you need to file a claim. We have handled medical malpractice cases of all kinds and can recover maximum damages for your case.

When a patient files a medical malpractice claim against a doctor, that doctor's medical license is put at risk. If found guilty of negligence and malpractice, the doctor could have their license revoked by the Medical Board and will lose their livelihood because of a claim. Even if they do not lose their license, their insurance may go up. That is why doctors, surgeons, and hospitals will fight liability aggressively. They also have extensive resources and are likely to retain skilled representation.

Types of Surgical Errors

Surgeries have countless ways in which mistakes can be made, many of which can be extremely costly to the patient.

  • Anesthesia errors
  • Contaminated instruments
  • Improper suturing
  • Internal or excessive bleeding
  • Foreign object left inside the patient
  • Wrong site or wrong side surgery
  • Wrong surgical procedure

Each of these mistakes can be easily prevented by a focused and well-trained surgeon. That is why you as the patient have every right to demand compensation for complications caused by negligence. Your health has been jeopardized and, in some cases, you may never return to the lifestyle you had before. Contact a skilled lawyer immediately to learn what steps you can take to obtain compensation.
