Medical Malpractice

Miami, FL Medical Malpractice Attorneys

Medical MalpracticeWe experience a powerful feeling of pain and betrayal when a loved one is unnecessarily harmed by healthcare providers to whom we have entrusted our health or the well-being of our family members. Sadly, many people have suffered from careless medical treatment.

Medical malpractice is committed far too frequently in Miami, Florida and throughout the U.S. “The equivalent of 390 jumbo jets full of people are dying each year due to likely preventable, in-hospital errors, making this one of the leading killers in the U.S,” observed HealthGrades’s vice president of medical affairs, Samantha Collier. HealthGrades, a leading healthcare quality company, estimated that 195,000 people died due to potentially preventable errors related to their healthcare in each of the years 2000, 2001 and 2002. The Institute of Medicine had previously estimated (and apparently underestimated) that 98,000 people die, and thousands more are injured, in this Country each year due to malpractice.

At Boyers Law, our medical malpractice lawyers in Miami, FL believe that negligent doctors, nurses and other health care providers should be held accountable for the lifetime harm that they inflict on their patients and their families. Over the years, our medical malpractice lawyers in Miami have litigated a wide variety of negligence cases involving doctors, nurses and hospitals and have achieved millions of dollars of compensation for the seriously injured patients and their families who we have proudly represented in these cases.

The medical malpractice lawyers in Miami at Boyers Law work with top experts in every specialty. One of our partners will also serve as lead counsel on every Florida malpractice case that we handle. Our highly trained lawyers and paralegals, however, work together as a team to achieve the best possible results at trial, or to achieve a favorable settlement for our clients.

What is Medical Malpractice?

In Florida, it is the failure of a healthcare provider to act in accordance with the accepted standard of proper care in the community. In other words, when a doctor, nurse or other healthcare provider is negligent and fails to act as would a reasonably prudent medical provider of the same specialty and causes a patient to suffer serious injury or wrongful death, the doctor, nurse or hospital may be held responsible for inflicting harm on his or her patients.

Proving that a doctor, nurse or other healthcare provider was negligent and fell below the community standard of care requires relentless investigation, total command of the facts of each case, top flight expert testimony and determined and thorough use of the civil discovery process and tools at the trial lawyer’s disposal. Our Miami based malpractice attorneys, therefore, take detailed and rigorous depositions of the defendants and adverse experts, make exhaustive requests for key documents, use document authenticity experts when we believe documents have been falsified, altered or omitted and send well crafted written interrogatories to the defendants in order to amass the evidence necessary to prevail in a complex malpractice case.

Finally, at trial, we use all of our firm’s experience, talent, hard work and resources to prove that the healthcare defendants are wrong, our clients are right and are justly entitled to a substantial compensatory verdict in their favor.
