How Can Our Kendall Malpractice Attorneys Prove Medical Negligence Caused Your Injury?

Proving malpractice can be a complicated process because we first must establish that negligence caused your injury. Doing so often means handling complex medical and legal issues. These cases require specific medical and legal expertise, and not all personal injury lawyers should be handling these sorts of cases. Make sure you are careful when selecting your medical malpractice lawyer.

Our legal team has handled hundreds of medical malpractice cases for clients across Florida. We know how to build a case, and we will do the work while you reserve your time and energy for healing. We can:

  • Collect evidence, including medical records, eyewitness statements, and medical and scientific research
  • Retain doctors, nurses, and other relevant experts
  • Investigate previous complaints made against the provider or facility in question
  • Identify, calculate, and prove your financial losses using bills, pay stubs, receipts, and estimates
  • Demonstrate that your injuries qualify you for pain and suffering compensation
  • Prepare and file case paperwork and meet all deadlines
  • Handle phone calls, meetings, and emails
  • Negotiate the maximum compensation possible
  • Take your case to civil court and represent you at trial to get economic justice on your behalf

With our legal team, you get more than just representation; you get a partner committed to fighting for your rights and securing the justice you deserve.

Every Case Gets Our Focused Attention

Freidin Brown, P.A. is selective in the attorneys it hires and the cases it takes. Unlike some big billboard firms, we limit our caseload so our lawyers can give every client personalized representation centered around their individual needs and goals.

Our founding partner, Philip Freidin, oversees every case along with other lawyers on our team. Our professional and compassionate staff knows you and the details of your claim for compensation.

Our Kendall Medical Malpractice Lawyers Will Fight for Maximum Compensation

When your health and financial stability are on the line, you do not want to leave your case to chance. Our medical malpractice attorneys will work tirelessly to ensure you get the money you need to recover from your injuries and move forward with your life. Compensation may include the following:

  • Medical treatment. We will seek reimbursement for bills you paid related to the negligent medical care that injured you. We will also pursue the current and future costs of treating your injury. Compensation may include surgeries, hospital stays, medications, medical equipment, physical therapy and rehabilitation, and long-term nursing.
  • Lost income. We will pursue your lost wages, earnings, and employment benefits. We will also seek compensation for your lost earning capacity if your injury forces you to change jobs or leave the workforce.
  • Pain and suffering. We will fight for non-economic damages to compensate for the physical, mental, and emotional toll taken by your medical malpractice injury. We can seek monetary awards for loss of mobility, scarring, disfigurement, physical and chronic pain, mental and emotional suffering, and diminished quality of life.
  • Miscellaneous expenses. We will pursue medical travel costs, household services, the cost of medically necessary home or vehicle modifications, and other various expenses.
  • Wrongful death. Sadly, some medical malpractice injuries are fatal. If you lost your loved one due to a medical mistake, our team can seek compensation on behalf of your loved one’s estate and survivors. Damages may include medical expenses, funeral and burial expenses, your loved one’s lost income and services, and non-economic compensation for surviving family members.

We Have Recovered Millions of Dollars for Clients Harmed by Medical Mistakes

Freidin Brown, P.A. has won over 20 verdicts exceeding $1 million for injured clients just like you. Though we can’t guarantee the same results, some of our medical malpractice case results include the following:

  • $38 million for the family of premature twin baby boys rendered blind due to a failure to screen and diagnose their condition following childbirth
  • $15.5 million for a car accident victim who was tragically paralyzed after the misreading of an MRI resulted in a lack of treatment for spinal cord injuries
  • $12.7 million for a five-year-old victim who sadly suffered a brain injury caused by negligent medical care
  • $9.75 million on behalf of a mother who suffered a stroke following a cesarean section (C-section)

We Abide By Florida’s Medical Malpractice Statute of Limitations to Protect Your Interests

At Freidin Brown, P.A., we understand the urgency and sensitivity of adhering to Florida’s Medical Malpractice Statute of Limitations. With limited exceptions, Florida law generally allows two years from the injury date for filing a medical malpractice lawsuit, as per Florida Statutes § 95.11 (4)(c). This deadline is crucial; missing it could mean losing your right to legal recourse, even with compelling evidence of a medical error.

Before beginning a lawsuit, Florida law requires specific steps. This includes serving a notice of intent to sue and presenting an affidavit of merit from a medical expert, as mandated by Florida Statutes § 766.203. This pre-suit process, which can extend up to 90 days, temporarily pauses the statute of limitations, adding another layer to the legal timeline.

Our Freidin Brown, P.A. team is committed to managing these critical steps on your behalf. We will assist in obtaining the necessary expert affidavit and represent you during pre-suit negotiations. Our focus is to ensure your case is prepared and actions are taken within legal deadlines, allowing you to concentrate on your recovery while we handle the legal complexities.

Medical Malpractice FAQs

Medical malpractice is a complicated area of the law, so you likely have questions about what to do if you sustained an injury caused by medical negligence. Our legal team will help you find answers. Below are a few of the most frequently asked questions about medical malpractice.

How Common Is Medical Malpractice?

Medical malpractice may be more common than you think. According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, 2,217 adverse action reports were filed against medical practitioners in Florida in 2022, resulting in 1,250 medical malpractice payments.

What Should You Do If You Believe You Suffered a Medical Error?

There are several things you should and should not do if you believe your or your loved one suffered an injury due to medical malpractice:

  • Seek medical treatment immediately from a different doctor or hospital.
  • Follow your new provider’s treatment recommendations, and do not miss future appointments.
  • Keep all medical and expense records.
  • Do not post about your injury on social media.
  • Do not engage in activities that could worsen your injuries.
  • Do not agree to an initial settlement offer or give a recorded statement to an insurance company or hospital.
  • Consider contacting a medical malpractice lawyer with our firm as soon as possible.

How Long Will It Take to Recover Medical Malpractice Damages?

How long it will take to resolve your case will depend on various factors, including whether we must go to trial. Often, insurance companies will play hardball and try to keep your compensation low.

While we want you to have the financial resources you need as quickly as possible, we will do what it takes to recover the maximum compensation, and sometimes that takes time.
