Medical Malpractice Services

According to the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), medical malpractice is the third leading cause of death in the United States, behind heart disease and cancer. In 2012 alone, over $3 billion was spent in medical malpractice payouts, averaging one payout about every 45 minutes. As true as these numbers are, they are hard to accept.

These statistics have caused many states like Florida to take aggressive measures to prevent these numbers from growing because the prosecution of medical malpractice cases can be extremely expensive, stressful and time-consuming for the courts, insurance companies, as well as the person or persons that have been injured.

What’s disappointing about medical malpractice injuries is that many of them could have been avoided. If you live in Florida and are suffering from the negligence of a medical event, you should contact Pennekamp Law today to schedule a FREE consultation with one of our attorneys that specializes in medical malpractice.

 

Types Of Medical Malpractice Injuries

Negligent behavior and unsanitary conditions are widely known for causing dangerous, and even deadly situations in many medical institutions in the state of Florida. While the medical industry can naturally create medically hazardous situations, the careless behavior of the doctors, nurses, and even the people handling prescriptions can result in an even an deadly environment.

A medical event can be classified as a medical malpractice injury if the victim received the injury or incurred a loss as a result of the medical negligent treatment they received. Types of injuries caused by medical malpractice include:

  • Burn Injuries - Burn injuries can be caused by exposure to the sun, chemicals, fires, severe heat, or even steam. Most severe burns will require medical attention. These injuries can range in severity from mild to life threatening.
  • Broken Bones - Long-term treatment of broken bones an include immobilization, which can include anything from a plaster cast to a splint or even surgical nails and wires. In some cases, surgery is needed to implant more permanent forms of immobilization.
  • Head Injuries - A head injury is any type of injury that affects a person's face, skull, or brain. Fatal head injuries can occur without the victim even knowing how badly they are injured. This occurs when the victim’s head is struck suddenly and suffers partial memory loss.
  • Impaired Vision - Injuries that cause impaired vision or blindness create lifetimes of struggle for victims. If you suffered an eye injury, you may have discovered that it alters your entire way of life, which is why you deserve the maximum compensation for your needs.
  • Loss Of A Limb - An amputation can be caused immediately from the occurrence of the accident, or it can be the result of the traumatic injury that requires a limb to be removed to help save the life of the victim from a fatal infection.

You Deserve Compensation

Many people do not realize that they can recover more than just the medical expenses to compensate for the damages caused by their medical malpractice injury. There are additional costs such as extended care, therapy, and losses of income that can be paid for by the defendant’s insurance company when legal action is taken. If you have incurred an injury related to medical malpractice, some of the items you are entitled to receive compensation for can include:

  • Loss Of Employment
  • Time Missed From Work
  • Interest Losses
  • Medical Bills
  • Therapy Costs

The main objective of the insurance companies is to pay out the lowest possible payment to settle a claim, and make it nearly impossible for the settlement amount to be increased. Ours is the exact opposite. We fight to get you the most amount of compensation you deserve to live a painless and stress free life, for the rest of your life, despite the seriousness of your injuries.

Regardless of how severe the injury you received from the medical negligence you received, Pennekamp Law will provide you with the legal representation you need to be compensated for your losses. Our legal team will be available to provide you with the counsel and support you need to make it through your tragedy. Call us today if you would like to share with us the medical malpractice injury you experienced, and the pain and suffering you have had to endure as a result of it.
