Experienced Medical Malpractice Lawyers Serving Injured Clients in Boca Raton
Boca Raton Medical Malpractice Law Firm
We trust our physicians with our life. Literally. Unfortunately, like all humans, doctors make mistakes. When a physician has a bad day at the office, the results are disastrous. Medical malpractice is now the third leading cause of death in America. Our Boca Raton area is not immune from doctor malpractice either. Palm Beach County was third only to Miami-Dade and Broward County in complaints made against doctors for malpractice and negligence last year.
Frequently Asked Questions about Boca Raton Doctor Negligence Claims
Q. How do I know if I am the victim of medical malpractice?
A. It is best to seek a follow up from an independent physician, and get their opinion on what happened to you. You can also contact our Boca Raton medical malpractice law firm for a free consultation.
Q. My Boca doctor does not carry malpractice insurance. Can I still sue them?
A. Yes. Whether a doctor carries insurance or not is irrelevant to you being able to sue them. Florida law requires all uninsured doctors have a $250,000 bond to cover medical liability claims. In fact, South Florida leads the nation in uninsured doctors.
Q. I only live in Boca part time, but the doctor I treated with is in Boca Raton. Do I need a Boca Raton lawyer? Or a lawyer in my hometown?
A. If the defendant doctor is in Boca, and the negligent care and treatment took place in Boca, the claim’s venue would be in Boca (i.e. Palm Beach County).
Q. How much does your law firm charge?
A. We only work on a contingency fee basis. If you make a financial recovery, we take 33.3% to 40% as attorneys fees. If we lose your case, you will not get a bill.
Q. Will my doctor malpractice lawsuit settle? Will I be forced to go to trial? How long will this claim take?
A. Each case is different so timeframes will vary based on the doctor’s malpractice, the injuries and the experts involved. Most Florida medical malpractice cases settle before trial. However, our Boca Raton doctor malpractice law firm is ready, willing and able to go to trial, should the defendant fail to offer you a fair amount of compensation.

Q. How can I begin my investigation into my Boca Raton doctor negligence claim?
A. You can start by obtaining all your medical records relevant to the injury. Do not tell your doctor you plan on suing him/her. Merely ask for a copy of your records so that you can have a copy for yourself at home. Once you gather your medical records, contact our lawyers at 1-844-253-8919. You can set up a time to come into our Boca Raton office and meet with a lawyer to go over your medical records. If this is not convenient for you, call us and set up a time for one of our attorneys to come meet you outside the office.
