Than Four Combined Decades
Dedicated Medical Malpractice Attorneys in Tampa, Florida
Our Tampa medical malpractice lawyers believe no one should seek medical treatment only to become more injured or ill than when they initially sought care.
Unfortunately, medical errors and malpractice incidents are becoming increasingly common in Florida and throughout the rest of the country. A recent study by Johns Hopkins University listed medical malpractice as the third-leading cause of death in the U.S., accounting for approximately 250,000 fatalities each year.

That is why we are here. Our Tampa medical malpractice lawyers provide legal solutions for individuals and family members whose lives have been negatively impacted by their healthcare providers, so they can seek both the financial recovery and justice they deserve.
What are the Most Common Causes of Medical Malpractice in Tampa, Florida?
Healthcare providers are held to a higher standard than most occupations and are expected to provide services that deliver a duty of care to each of their patients.
When that duty is interrupted by negligence, patients are going to get hurt, or worse, suddenly lose their lives while under a physician’s care.

- Failure to diagnose or misdiagnosis

- Contamination and hospital-acquired infections
- Failure to recognize symptoms
- Emergency room negligence
- Birth injuries
- Failure to order proper testing
