Florida Medical Malpractice Attorneys Based in Tampa

LARSON JOHNSON has the experience, skill, reputation and resources you need in these tough cases.

At any given moment in Tampa or throughout the State of Florida there are enumerable chances for errors in the healthcare system that could lead to injuries or death. As patients, we hope for the best – that the doctors, nurses and other medical and healthcare personnel will heal us or at least do no further harm.  But sometimes they fail.  When errors are the result of negligence – i.e., when healthcare providers violate the established standards of care – you need to hire a highly skilled medical malpractice attorney.

The skilled and experienced lawyers at Larson Johnson, P.L. in Tampa, Florida, understand the complex and strict medical malpractice laws that govern these cases.  We know what it takes to navigate the difficult medical malpractice process and secure compensation and closure for our injured clients or the loved ones of a deceased family member.

Statute of Limitations

The law places a time limitation on when you can make a claim against a doctor, hospital or other medical provider. Generally speaking, the statute of limitations for filing a medical malpractice claim is two years from the date that the incident causing the injury or death occurred or two years from when the injury or death was discovered to be the result of a medical error.  Florida Statutes require the doctor, hospital or other medical provider to formally be placed on notice of your claim. These notice requirements are very complex, and in our opinion, require an attorney’s assistance.  If you do not comply with the applicable statute of limitations, your claim is forever barred. Time is of the essence. You need to act immediately to protect your rights if you wish to pursue a potential case. Medical Malpractice Lawsuits Can Include:

  • Surgical errors
  • Labor and delivery injuries
  • Delayed diagnosis resulting in permanent injury or death
  • Misdiagnosis
  • Failure to diagnose conditions like stroke, heart attack, staff infections, cancer, etc.
  • Failure to treat and/or prematurely discharging a patient
  • Prescription drug errors
  • Delayed diagnosis
  • Unnecessary surgery
  • Errors in anesthesia

It takes an aggressive and experienced medical malpractice lawyer to get insurers to pay the maximum amount for injuries and wrongful death caused by medical negligence.  The insurance companies will fight back with as much fire power as they can to deny medical malpractice claims.  At Larson Johnson, P.L. in Tampa, we know what it takes to help clients who have been injured or whose loved ones have died because of medical errors.
