Miami Cardiology Malpractice Attorneys

Miami Cardiology Malpractice AttorneysWhile we expect cardiologists and other heart health professionals to treat every patient with care and compassion and provide excellent healthcare, the fact is, this is not always the reality. Doctors make mistakes and bad judgment calls and can even be negligent. This negligence is a betrayal of the trust you put in a professional’s hands, and patients are within their rights to hold them accountable. Let the Miami cardiology malpractice attorneys at Freidin Brown, P.A. help you through this challenging time.

You have to navigate your life after a serious cardiac event, and your focus should be on healing, resting, and getting your strength back. If your loved one died due to malpractice, dealing with the fallout of a medical malpractice claim can be especially difficult. Regardless of the situation, our medical malpractice attorneys want to help. Call us at today to get started with a free consultation.

Our Cardiology Malpractice Lawyers Help Injury Victims

Taking legal action might be the last thing on your mind right now. You have a lot to handle, and the thought of insurers and courts is overwhelming. But you do not have to sacrifice justice for peace of mind. At Freidin Brown, P.A., we make it possible to pursue the compensation owed to you while spending your time getting your life back on track.

Our Miami cardiology malpractice lawyers take on the complex legal tasks of holding someone accountable for medical malpractice. Some of the things we can do for you include:

  • Establishing the doctor’s (or other professional’s) liability: Identifying liable parties is crucial to your case. The threshold for malpractice is quite high, and Florida laws make it tricky to navigate. We must establish that the provider violated the standard of care for their profession and that their behavior and actions caused your injuries. The insurance company will fight us, saying that its insured doctor acted within the established standard of care, but we will work to disprove this claim.
  • Compiling evidence: As your lawyers, we will gather any evidence and witness accounts to help support your claim. While you should give us whatever you can to support your claim, we can contact hospitals, doctors’ offices, and others to compile medical records, bills, and other information important to your case.
  • Drawing on our professional resources: In a medical malpractice case, it’s important to have doctors, nurses, and other medical experts on your side who can support your claims. Our lawyers work with a network of top experts who can discuss standards of care and reasonable expectations or practices for your injury. We work with people across the country to make sure you have the best possible chances of seeking compensation.
  • Negotiating with insurers: Malpractice insurance companies are unlikely to give you the best offer at first. Their initial offer is often not enough to cover all of your losses, but you may not realize it. Don’t take any offers without speaking to us– we can ensure the settlement is fair. If it’s not acceptable, we can discuss it with insurers to try to come up with the maximum possible settlement. Many cases are resolved at this stage, but we are prepared to take it further if negotiations are unsuccessful.
  • Representing you at trial: Many firms claim they can take your case all the way to court, but they may not be fully prepared to take a case to trial when it deals with something as complicated as a medical malpractice lawsuit. We have Board Certified civil trial lawyers on our team, and we’ve taken over 300 personal injury and medical negligence trials to a jury. We’ve made it our mission to do everything in our power to get you the crucial settlement you need to pay for your cardiology malpractice losses, and we mean it.

We would be honored to take on these and other tasks to ensure you get compensation for all your losses.

We Can Deliver Results for a Miami Malpractice Case

With over four decades of experience helping Miami and other Florida residents get compensation for damages, we’ve had our share of medical malpractice victories. We have over 20 verdicts with settlements of over $1 million, plus plenty of other cases with satisfactory results. Some of our results include:

  • A confidential settlement amount for the tragic death of a teen girl. The patient suffered from internal organ damage after heart surgery due to a failure to remove a pulmonary clamp. Our lawyers were able to help her family seek compensation and justice.
  • $1,000,000 jury verdict for a bacterial endocarditis patient who ended up suffering from a stroke. The stroke occurred because nurses did not follow up on orders from physicians.
  • $1,400,000 settlement for a gentleman who suffered brain damage after improper intubation following a cardiac event. We obtained this pre-suit settlement for his family so that they could care for him following these incidents.

We know how difficult it is to deal with these events, but we’d like to see how our firm can help. Please call us to speak with our team today.

You Deserve Just Compensation for Cardiology Malpractice Damages

No amount of money will ever make up for the trauma and pain you’ve suffered at the hands of a negligent cardiologist, nurse, or other medical professional. You’ve been through a lot and may have far to go before your life is somewhat back to normal. Things may never get better, as some conditions may leave you permanently harmed, or the malpractice could have caused the death of a family member. You deserve compensation for the harm done to you and your loved ones.

When reviewing your case, we will ensure you are properly compensated for your economic and non-economic losses.

Economic Damages Following Cardiology Malpractice

Economic damages include any losses with a monetary value proven by documentation like bills, receipts, and invoices. Our lawyers typically seek compensation for your:

  • Medical expenses: Medical negligence often hurts and disables victims for weeks, months, years, or the rest of their lives. You may need multiple surgeries, scans, tests, and medications to recover or live your life. You may also need extensive mental health treatment to recover from your ordeal. Not only do we account for the immediate medical concerns, but we also seek the maximum possible value for your future expenses.
  • Home accommodations and assistive devices: Depending on your condition and the medical professional’s actions, you may have heart problems and other complications that fundamentally change your life. You may need to remodel or install assistive devices in your home to accommodate your injuries and disabilities, or you may need items like wheelchairs.
  • Lost income and earning capacity: You will likely be out of work for a while while you recover, which can devastate your household financially. It’s possible you may never work again or not in the same capacity. We will seek compensation for all lost forms of income and any lost benefits or earnings you will now miss out on.
  • Funeral expenses: Unfortunately, medical malpractice can cost lives. If a loved one passed away due to malpractice, we can help you seek payment for funeral and burial expenses.

While these and other economic damages may seem easier losses to measure, accounting for the full scope of current and past damages is challenging, and we recommend that you leave it to our team. We will make sure to fight for what you need.

Cardiology Malpractice Means You Suffer Non-Economic Damages, Too

Non-economic damages are just as important as economic ones but are more challenging to account for. These losses are designed to compensate you for the emotional and mental effects of your ordeal. This includes:

  • Pain and suffering: This reimburses you for the pain and emotional trauma caused by your injuries.
  • Mental anguish: This accounts for conditions like anxiety, depression, and insomnia related to the harm you suffered.
  • Loss of enjoyment of life: Your life may never be the same, and your ability to live it to the fullest is also hurt. You absolutely deserve compensation for this kind of loss.

These and other non-economic damages are crucial to getting you fair and full compensation, so don’t discount these losses. We will make sure to get you every penny you need.

What Is Cardiology Malpractice?

Perhaps you already had cardiac issues, and now they are worse due to medical negligence or medical errors. Maybe you already had other health problems, and someone’s negligent actions now created heart problems for you. No matter the cause of your issues, we can help with any harm from cardiology malpractice.

Here are just a few example scenarios:

  • A nurse dismissed your heart attack symptoms and said you were merely anxious
  • A radiologist failed to deliver crucial imaging results that could have prevented your myocarditis from worsening
  • Your doctor mistreated your hypertension, and now you’ve developed cardiogenic pulmonary edema
  • Your cardiologist prescribed a medication that would later cause a heart attack  because they couldn’t be bothered to check your medical history

We’ve seen patients who’ve suffered due to mistreatment, misdiagnosis, failure to treat or diagnose their conditions, delayed diagnoses, surgical errors, and many other forms of cardiology malpractice. Doctors, nurses, pharmacists, imaging technicians, hospitals, and many other parties could be held liable for your losses, depending on the circumstances of your case.

How Long Do I Have to Sue a Doctor for Cardiology Malpractice?

When it comes to medical malpractice, including cardiology malpractice, you generally only have two years to sue, per Florida Statutes § 95.11 (4)(c). However, there are exceptions to this rule that may shorten or extend this deadline. Do not delay in contacting us after suspected malpractice.
