Medical Malpractice

Florida medical malpractice is negligence committed by a professional health care provider, doctor, nurse, dentist, dental office or staff, pathologist, neurologist, oncologist, cardiologist, toxicologist, pharmacologist, technician, nursing home or staff, hospital or hospital worker in the state of Florida whose performance of duties deviates from a standard of care of those with similar training and experience, resulting in harm to a patient or patients.

Medical malpractice cases are based on the concept of negligence. The Florida medical malpractice lawyers at Leesfield Scolaro will help recover damages for clients who were harmed if the health care provider failed to meet the required standard of care. Every Florida medical malpractice case that we investigate is analyzed by a team including medical malpractice attorneys, experts, nurses, and physicians to determine if your claim meets the threshold requirements of the law.

We understand that Florida medical malpractice cases must be handled in a timely manner. Florida has a two-year statute of limitations in medical negligence cases, which means that the lawsuit must be brought within two years from the time the patient, family member, or guardian knew or should have known that the injury occurred due to medical malpractice. Florida also has a "statute of repose," which means that unless there is fraud, misrepresentation, or concealment, one can never sue a health care provider more than four years after the actual malpractice incident.

Recently, we secured a $8,800,000 settlement for a 34-year-old wife and mother for negligent medical care and treatment. For a complete list of Leesfield & Partner's Florida medical malpractice representative results, go to our Verdicts and Settlements section.

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
