The Anidjar & Levine Team Helps You Build a Strong Medical Malpractice Case and Win Fair Compensation
If a doctor or healthcare provider’s error, negligence, or mistake in judgment caused you or a loved one to suffer physical, mental, or emotional harm, our lawyers want to hear from you. We will investigate your claim and gather evidence that the provider’s actions or lack of action constituted medical malpractice. You could be eligible to receive substantial compensation.
To show that the doctor or provider committed malpractice, we demonstrate four things:
The Provider Had a Duty of Care to You
A duty of care is a professional obligation to a patient by which a doctor or healthcare provider is bound. For us to have a valid medical malpractice claim, this duty must be present. We prove your doctor had a duty of care to you by showing that a doctor/patient relationship existed.
The Provider Did Not Uphold Their Duty of Care
To show that your doctor or provider did not uphold their duty of care, we use the reasonable person standard. This standard compares their actions to those that one would expect of a reasonable physician faced with the same circumstances. If your doctor’s behavior did not live up to what a reasonable physician would have done in the same situation, we can show that they did not uphold their duty.
The Provider’s Wrongful Actions Injured You
We then must draw a link from the provider’s failure to uphold their duty—or causation in medical malpractice claims—to your injuries. To make this link as strong as possible, we rely on several types of evidence, including medical records, statements from other doctors, the provider’s own statements, and testimony from expert witnesses.
Your Injuries Resulted in Economic or Non-Economic Losses
To win compensation, we have to demonstrate that you incurred losses because of your injuries. Some of these losses will be financial, such as the cost of your medical bills or your lost income from work, but you can also receive compensation for non-economic damages, such as pain and suffering.
Before You Accept a Settlement, Talk to the Medical Malpractice Lawyers at Anidjar & Levine
Every medical malpractice case is different. Sometimes the doctor or provider digs their heels in and denies any instance of wrongdoing. Other times they may offer a quick settlement to make the whole thing go away. Only a small fraction of medical malpractice claims go to court and an even smaller number make it all the way to a jury verdict.
If offered a settlement, it can be tempting to take, especially if you have medical bills and other expenses piling up. However, it is a risk to do so without first speaking with an attorney, as it could result in leaving money on the table.
Most settlements offered without negotiation do not include anywhere near the full compensation for which you are eligible. From the doctor’s perspective, the entire point of offering a settlement is to avoid paying what they might have to at trial.
Speak With a Lawyer Before Accepting a Settlement
Before you accept or even entertain a settlement, speak to a medical malpractice lawyer in Florida at The Law Firm of Anidjar & Levine. The consultation is always free, and we can evaluate your situation and advise of your legal options. Often, we can negotiate on your behalf and get you a much higher sum than what you were offered.
Our Attorneys Fight to Recover Full Damages
Do you know how much your medical malpractice claim is worth? It could be more than you think. Medical malpractice settlements are among the most lucrative in personal injury law. While every case is different, and it is difficult to estimate figures before evaluating your claim, you could be eligible to collect damages for some or all of the following items:
- Medical bills: Including both current and anticipated future expenses. These costs include those for hospital stays, doctor visits, prescriptions, medical devices, and more.
- Lost wages: The money you are unable to earn while recovering from your injury or attending medical appointments.
- Reduced earning capacity: Any long-term drop in income that occurs because your injury prevents you from doing the same type of work you did before.
- Pain and suffering: The physical distress you have incurred because of your injury.
- Emotional anguish: Emotional distress, which could include nightmares, phobias, avoidance behaviors, or loss of enjoyment of previous hobbies.
- Scarring and disfigurement: The mental and emotional anguish resulting from a permanent or long-term change in your appearance.
Statute of Limitations
Be aware that there is a time limit on filing your claim. Under Florida law, you have two years to file a medical malpractice claim. The sooner you file your claim the sooner your lawyers can gather evidence to help strengthen your case.
