Our Hospital Malpractice Attorneys Have Secured Millions in Case Results

Our firm’s case results in medical malpractice claims and lawsuits require further examination. Our notable results in cases like yours include:

  • $38 million: We represented a family whose twin boys suffered blindness because doctors failed to properly detect and diagnose the conditions that caused their blindness. A jury awarded our clients this substantial award after we proved the doctor failed to honor their duty of care to the boys and their parents.
  • $12.7 million: A jury found Nicklaus Children’s Hospital responsible for a 5-year-old patient’s brain injury, determining that the hospital staff was negligent in caring for the child.
  • $9.75 million: Our client suffered a stroke following a C-section procedure, and we explained to a jury that negligent care caused the serious medical event at a Miami hospital. Attorney Jonathan Freidin secured a substantial award for the client.
  • $5.5 million: Our client received a multimillion-dollar settlement after we determined that emergency medical providers handled her condition improperly.
  • $4.625 million: Attorneys Philip and Jonathan Freidin proved that a hospital discharged a child too soon after a premature birth. The child would become blind due to retinopathy of prematurity (ROP), and we secured a large jury verdict to help cover medical bills, pain and suffering, and other damages.
  • $3 million: In a particularly tragic case, we represented the family of a mother who died due to complications following childbirth. We established that more appropriate action by the medical provider may have saved the mother’s life.

Phil and Jonathan stepped up to the challenge, and were exceptional throughout the entire process, and really accepted us as family members into their law firm. So we were very, very pleased with the outcome. And we recommend them fully, 100%.”

Medical Malpractice Complaints Against Baptist Hospital of Miami

Baptist Hospital is no stranger to medical malpractice lawsuits. In 2008, an insulin-dependent diabetic was admitted to Baptist Hospital for treatment. While recovering in the intensive care unit, the nursing staff allegedly did not give the patient insulin, triggering a cardiac arrest response.

After spending 40 minutes trying to save her, the doctors realized she needed insulin. Although she was eventually revived, the patient suffered a severe brain injury. The patient received a judgment of $7.8 million in her lawsuit against Baptist Hospital.

We must evaluate your damages to determine the value of your case. Our Miami medical practice attorneys will consider economic, non-economic, and future damages as we calculate a fair settlement amount.
