Fair Compensation After Medical Negligence
Most of Florida’s doctors provide their patients with high-quality care most of the time. But sometimes, doctors make careless or reckless mistakes that harm a patient. A patient can end up permanently disabled or even die due to their physician’s negligence.
At the Valente Law Firm, we hold doctors, hospitals and medical clinics responsible when they harm someone through medical malpractice. Our attorneys and staff routinely handle complex malpractice litigation on behalf of our clients. As a husband-and-wife team of trial lawyers, we have earned a reputation for tough, uncompromising and ethical representation in the courtroom. We know what it takes to recover maximum compensation from medical malpractice insurance companies and their corporate counsel.
What Medical Malpractice Can Look Like In West Palm Beach
Medical negligence can take many forms, including:
- Failure to diagnose/misdiagnosis
- Birth injuries
- Medication errors, including prescribing the wrong medicine or a dangerous dosage
- Wrong-site surgery, such as operating on the left-side kidney instead of the one on the right side
Malpractice goes beyond a simple mistake. It results from a doctor, nurse, anesthesiologist or other health care worker providing a level of care that falls below the community standard. Negligent medical professionals – and the hospitals and clinics that employ them – pose a serious threat to public health. We count on our doctors to do their best to make us well when we get sick or injured, not cause us to suffer greater harm than necessary.
Tough Representation In And Out Of The Courtroom
Medical malpractice litigation often involves millions of dollars in damages due to medical bills, lost wages, wrongful death, and pain and suffering. We build a compelling case based on the evidence and use it to negotiate a settlement to cover those costs substantially. If the defendant and their insurance company cannot be reasonable, we are always ready to take them to court to let the jury decide.
