Jacksonville Medical Malpractice Attorney
Were You The Victim of Medical Negligence?
We trust doctors and medical professionals to take care of us in our times of need. People working in this profession go through years of rigorous training and education, but that doesn't mean they never make mistakes – sometimes, these mistakes can even cost the life of the person they're trying to save. If you or someone you love was seriously injured or killed because of a medical professional's negligent actions, it's important to seek expereinced legal representation as soon as possible.
Doctors and other medical professionals are required to pay steep premiums for malpractice insurance coverage, as the awards for personal injury lawsuits in such cases are often exceedingly generous to the plaintiff. The Jacksonville medical malpractice attorneys at the Law Offices of Jason K.S. Porter, P.A. are all former prosecutors, and we know how to make a convincing argument in the courtroom.
Common Examples of Medical Malpractice
Medical malpractice occurs when the caregiver caused the patient to suffer an injury or a worsening of condition by failing to conform to acceptable standards of practice. Some examples include:
- Failure to diagnose a condition or misdiagnosis
- Wrong prescription
- Birth injuries caused by improper use of forceps or vacuum, unnecessary procedures or inadequate monitoring
- Sexual abuse or physical violence against psychiatric patients
- Surgical errors, including unnecessary surgeries
If you have any questions about whether you have been the victim of medical malpractice, a personal injury attorney from our firm can meet with you to discuss the incident and determine whether you have a claim.
