Tampa Medical Negligence Attorney
Cases of Medical Negligence in Tampa, Florida
When a medical professional either acts negligently or fails to provide adequate care for a patient, this is considered medical negligence and a form of malpractice on their part. Every year, countless individuals in our state are injured and lose their lives due to medical malpractice and negligence. The National Institute of Health estimates that 225,000 people are killed by medical malpractice every year, and 12,000 people die each year from unnecessary surgeries.
If you or someone you care about has been injured, or your family has lost a loved one to what you believe is wrongful death, it is vitally important that you learn what legal recourse is available to you and what your rights are with regard to seeking compensation for your loss in financial terms.
Legal Action in Cases of Medical Negligence
