Bradenton/Sarasota Medical Malpractice Attorney who Understands Hospital Operations
Recent reports reveal that medical malpractice is the third leading cause of death in the United States, just behind heart disease and cancer. Of the staggering 225,000 deaths caused each year by medical mistakes in the U.S, 12,000 people die from unnecessary surgery; 7,000 die from medication errors, and 80,000 die from infections acquired in hospitals. Countless more are injured to varying degrees by medical negligence. Almost all of these errors could be prevented, often with simple measures such as better patient identification protocols and more effective cleaning of hospital surfaces and equipment.
At The Nurse Attorney, P.A. with offices in the Bradenton / Sarasota and central Florida areas, our attorneys are especially adept at representing patients and their surviving family members in Florida medical malpractice cases. With more than 30 years of combined medical and legal experience, Marjorie Chalfant knows what goes on “behind the scenes” in hospitals and is extremely comfortable and capable when it comes to reviewing and understanding whether the appropriate standard of care in a given instance was violated.
Our team represents patients and their families who have been harmed by medical malpractice in many different ways, including:
- Misdiagnosis of Cancer
- Birth Injuries
- Surgical Errors
- Medication Errors
- Hospital-Acquired Infections
- Blood and Platelet Transfusions
- Pulmonary Embolism
Dedicated and committed to learning the true facts about your case
Not all negative outcomes in a hospital are the result of malpractice. Medicine is a highly-specialized field, and outsiders are not likely to know whether a bad result or worsening condition was caused by medical error or not. Doctors and hospitals know this and may offer excuses about the cause of a particular condition. Medical errors are often not reported, and in some cases they are intentionally hidden from disclosure. The Nurse Attorney, P.A. offers a unique combination of knowledge and experience to go behind the scenes and uncover the facts behind a patient’s injury or illness.
