Florida Medical Malpractice

Whether you live in Florida or anywhere else, injuries resulting from medical malpractice are massive and life-changing. When you or a member of your family is sick or injured, you must put your trust and your very livelihood in the hands of medical professionals. The vast majority of medical experiences are positive ones, but a small percentage of people among us have had terrible outcomes, and in situations where something goes wrong, you need to be protected.

Florida Medical Malpractice Explained

Medical malpractice is negligence committed by a professional health care provider whose performance of duties deviates from a standard of practice of those with similar training and experience, resulting in harm to a patient. Medical malpractice cases are based on the concept of negligence. Medical malpractice can happen for any number of reasons ranging from surgical negligence to failure to diagnose. Our personal injury law firm has secured settlements and verdicts on behalf of seriously injured clients for over 45 years. Our skilled trial lawyers present effective and aggressive legal representation for people who have been injured as a result of medical malpractice.

Victims of Florida Medical Malpractice

When you have been the victim of medical malpractice in Florida, you deserve to be compensated for the injuries caused by the negligence of another, including compensatory damages and pain and suffering. In Florida, a person who has been the victim of medical malpractice has two years to file a lawsuit or face the possibility to have his or her claim barred because of the two-year statute of limitation. It is extremely important that you receive the advice of skilled and experienced attorneys to protect your rights.

I have known Ira for several decades and without a doubt he represents the best of the profession- a never ending commitment to his clients and a perpetual desire for learning and sharing his expertise with his colleagues. Richard
I found, and still find, that Ira’s firm will evaluate the case fairly and provide the client with a reasonably expectation of the process involved and will avoid giving false hope where there is none. Also Ira’s firm consistently keeps in constant touch with the client as well as referring attorneys so each knows the progress of a case. Finally I can tell you that if I personally were injured, Ira Leesfield is the first person I would call. Michael Browning
