As the leading medical malpractice lawyers serving Pembroke Pines, Martin, Lister & Alvarez would like to remind you that even though medical malpractice is the third leading cause of death in the country, trying to find justice in a Florida court against physicians, hospitals and other medical professionals can be exceptionally difficult. Thanks to the Florida Medical Association and the Florida insurance industry, our home state has perhaps the most complex and convoluted rules and law regarding malpractice in the country.
At Martin, Alvarez & Lister we understand how hurtful this period of time is for you. Nobody wants to be injured by another but it is doubly hurtful when the person who injures you is supposed to be healing you. But despite of the pain, confusion and uncertainty you have about the future; your top priority is to get experienced representation from a Pembroke Pines medical malpractice firm who can take charge of the case and let you focus on healing.
You want Martin, Lister & Alvarez.
In Florida, Medical Malpractice is a Specialty Legal Field
Other types of personal injury cases like product liability, premises liability and automobile accidents appear to be straightforward in comparison to medical malpractice lawsuits. The first challenge is to simply qualify to file. Insurance companies will try to have your case dismissed by attempting to prove that one or more of the following conditions did not exist:
- Negligence on the part of the physician or organization
- Misconduct, meaning no other professional would have routinely committed the same mistakes
- Damages or injury
- Proximate or immediate cause
The court records are overflowing with different definitions of negligence and misconduct and for a law firm to be successful in pursuing a medical malpractice case they have to stay on top of arguments and decisions from across the state on an almost daily basis. That’s the kind of dedication Martin, Lister & Alvarez delivers to their clients. We have a proven track record of success with malpractice suits and we are ready to assist you and help you through this difficult time.
Time really is of the essence in these cases because the statute of limitation in malpractice suits is half that of most other types of personal injury lawsuits. Contact us today for a complimentary case review!
