Sarasota/Bradenton & Orlando Attorneys for Personal Injury, Medical Malpractice and Workers’ Compensation
Attorneys Marjorie Chalfant, R.N., J.D., and Steven M. Meyers, Esq., are the lead attorneys at the offices of The Nurse Attorney, P.A. in Sarasota/Bradenton and Orlando. Together, Marjorie and Steve have spent over fifty years in courtrooms representing injured victims and their families. They have been lead counsel in jury trials involving brain damage, quadriplegia, misdiagnosis and death. Marjorie and Steve have tried multiple medical malpractice cases to verdict, along with auto accident, premises liability and other serious injury cases, and have obtained many multi-million dollar settlements and recoveries for their clients. Let our lawyers put their years of experience, knowledge and dedication to work for you, and help you get the compensation you need and deserve when you have been injured because of another’s negligence or incompetence.
Whether you have been injured from malpractice, at work, on the road, or in public, you are entitled to compensation for your injuries and damages suffered, including medical bills and lost income.
Unfortunately, healthcare providers, employers, negligent parties and their insurance companies hire aggressive adjusters and lawyers to try to pay as little as possible on your claim – or to deny any responsibility at all – if they can. Although you may be the injured victim, but the “burden of proof” will fall on you to prove that the other party is responsible for your injury and should compensate you for your harms and losses. Standing up to the insurance company defense lawyers and proving your case requires knowledge of the law, and medicine as well as a thorough understanding of your immediate and long-term medical needs, in order to be fully compensated.
What most lawyers DON’T know, a Nurse-Attorney DOES!
For over a decade, Marjorie Chalfant worked as a Critical Care Registered Nurse in central Florida hospitals and nursing homes. As she transitioned to a career in law, Marjorie combined her nursing knowledge and skills with her law practice. Her combined experience in nursing and law makes her exceptional in handling medical malpractice and personal injury cases
At The Nurse Attorney, P.A., we know the law – and we know the medicine! Our team is able to quickly evaluate your claim and let you know the strengths or weaknesses of your case. We understand the medical aspects of severe injury and death claims, and we are well-versed in how proper medical care should be provided. From a review of your medical records we are often able to discover what was going on “behind the scenes” in your medical records, including important information that may have been left out of the official record.
With our medical training combined with our legal training, we are able to communicate directly with medical professionals and your care providers, and communicate effectively with insurance companies and juries, without having to be educated by hiring nurses to evaluate medical records for us. This cuts time and costs out of your case that other attorneys may require, and enables us to provide top quality representation to maximize your recovery.
