Although it is never the intention of doctors, nurses and other health care professionals to cause injury or death, mistakes are made every day. Every year, more people in Florida die from medical malpractice than auto accidents. Unfortunately, many people do not even realize that something went wrong.
Medical malpractice results when a health care provider either fails to act reasonably or does something that a reasonable health care provider would not do which results in injury or death.
If you have suffered injury due to inferior health care or lost a loved one because of mistakes made by a health care provider or facility, please contact a Florida medical malpractice attorney from The Gordon Law Firm to represent you.
