Port St. Lucie Surgical Error Lawyer
Much like a medical malpractice case, a surgical procedure is a process. A serious error could occur at any point in this process.
Before a surgical procedure, the healthcare team generally superheats instruments to sterilize them. Not hot enough, and dangerous bacteria could go directly into the patient’s body. Too hot, and the instrument might seriously burn the patient. During the procedure, doctors must take as much time as they need to do everything right. Because so much is at stake, there’s no margin for error. After surgical procedures, the surgical team must closely monitor patients and immediately intervene at the first sign of trouble. Any delay could be catastrophic.
The diligent Port St. Lucie surgical error lawyers at Freidin Brown, P.A. work very hard, from day one, to build the strongest possible claim. This hard work begins with a thorough consultation that not only includes a case evaluation. We also listen to you, so we know your needs and goals. Then, we collect as much evidence as necessary to obtain maximum compensation. Finally, once your case goes to court, we never stop fighting for you.
Why Should We File a Medical Negligence Claim?
Negligence cases do not “blame” doctors for the injuries they cause. Instead, these cases hold doctors responsible for the mistakes they make. That’s the best reason to file a medical negligence claim.
Confidence is a good trait in a doctor. Overconfidence is a dangerous trait, especially if doctors think they are somehow above the law. Medical negligence claims enforce the simple and straightforward principle that everyone should take responsibility for their mistakes. Florida would be an even better place to live if we all lived by this principle.
Additionally, victims need and deserve compensation. They need it to pay medical bills and other injury-related expenses. Attorneys can defer these expenses, usually until the claim is resolved. However, these bills must be paid eventually. Moreover, medical malpractice victims deserve compensation because the doctor was negligent. If Dr. X carelessly runs over her neighbor’s mailbox, she must pay to replace the mailbox. If Dr. X carelessly injures a patient, she must likewise pay compensation. The compensation is higher in injury claims because people are much more valuable than mailboxes.
How Do We Find the Best Port St. Lucie Surgical Error Lawyer?
Any of the thousands of lawyers in Florida could handle a simple medical malpractice claim. However, there’s usually no such thing as a “simple” surgical error claim. Only a select few attorneys can handle complex claims. As you look for the right lawyer, focus on:
- Dedication: Lawyers who handle a few malpractice cases on the side are not prepared to deal with the complex factual and legal issues in these cases. So, when things get tough, they look for a quick way out. Dedicated lawyers are ready, willing, and able to go the distance.
- Accessibility: Because of their serious injuries, surgical error victims normally have a hard time getting around. So, a lawyer should be physically close to the victim’s home or office. Professional accessibility is important as well. When you have a question about your case, you shouldn’t have to talk to a non-lawyer assistant.
- Experience: In law school, students learn valuable skills, such as how to think like lawyers. But no law school can possibly prepare students for the reality of practicing law in Florida. Only the school of hard knocks gives attorneys that kind of experience.
Look carefully for the right attorney, but look quickly. Medical malpractice victims have a limited amount of time to act.
