Jacksonville Medical Malpractice Attorney
Injuries Caused by Healthcare Provider Negligence
Doctors and other medical professionals are required to pay steep premiums
for malpractice insurance coverage, as the awards for
personal injury lawsuits in such cases are often exceedingly generous to the plaintiff.
The Jacksonville medical malpractice attorneys at the law office of Jason
K.S. Porter are all former prosecutors, and we know how to make a convincing
argument in the courtroom.
Medical malpractice occurs when the caregiver caused the patient to suffer
an injury or a worsening of condition by failing to conform to acceptable
standards of practice. Common examples include:
- Failure to diagnose a condition or misdiagnosis
- Wrong prescription
- Birth injuries caused by improper use of forceps or vacuum, unnecessary
procedures or inadequate monitoring
- Sexual abuse or physical violence against psychiatric patients
- Surgical errors, including unnecessary surgeries
If you have any questions about whether you have been the victim of medical
malpractice, a personal injury attorney from our firm can meet with you
to discuss the incident and determine whether you have a claim.
