Medical Malpractice Attorneys

Few people look forward to visiting the doctor. We usually seek medical care when we are injured or have fallen ill, and in these situations we expect that the doctor, nurse or other medical professional we deal with will be accurate in their diagnosis and diligent in their treatment. We also expect to receive proper treatment and care for routine check-ups, dental care, plastic surgery, prenatal care and in the delivery of a new baby. Unfortunately, the medical care we actually receive is not always up to accepted standards. If you or someone you know has been the victim of medical malpractice of any kind, you have the right to hold the caregiver or facility responsible for their negligence.

Finding a medical malpractice attorney is crucial if you have been injured by a doctor's inexperience, carelessness or outright negligence. We built this directory to offer you a valuable source of information related to medical malpractice laws and lawsuits in the U.S. and also to help you find and compare qualified professionals in your area.

Weinstein, Scharf & Dubinsky – Fort Lauderdale Medical Malpractice Lawyers

Has your family member been affected by medical malpractice? Did a doctor's irresponsible actions lead to the injury, illness, or death of your family member? If you believe that a doctor caused this harm to your family member or you suspect that malpractice is the cause of the incident, it is in your best interest to immediately speak with a Fort Lauderdale personal injury attorney from Weinstein, Scharf & Dubinsky. On their legal team, they have over 85 years of collective experience that strengthens each case the firm takes on. They have an extensive understanding and have proven strategies to take on large insurance providers, hospitals, and individual doctors who have mistreated patients.

When a person is injured or falls ill, they often turn to the professional care of a doctor or physician. Everyone expects a high level of care from their doctor, and they rarely suspect that something can go awry and cause them great injury. Unfortunately, many care facilities are understaffed or profit-driven, which results in serious mistakes by inexperienced or unprofessional doctors. There is no excuse for substandard care – a patient's health should be the main priority of each and every doctor. If they fail to live up to these standards, they may be held accountable for damages they cause.

Losing a loved one or suffering debilitating injuries because a doctor failed to provide the level of care they are expected to give is unacceptable. Let the team at Weinstein, Scharf & Dubinsky help you understand your rights and fight to seek legal compensation for your emergency room error, anesthesia malpractice, medication error, or medical misdiagnosis case. The firm has helped with many different types of medical malpractice cases and has an impressive track record in helping their clients seek the compensation that they deserve. Contact a Fort Lauderdale medical malpractice lawyer at the office today to learn more about your options.
