Bradenton Medical Malpractice Lawyer

When a physician makes a mistake that leads to your pain and suffering, disability, illness, or other medical condition that would not have happened under the care of another doctor, you may be able to file a medical malpractice lawsuit against that physician or hospital in order to receive financial compensation. All physicians must abide by the same standard of care, and when that standard of care is violated and you are injured because of it, or a loved one loses their life, that physician should be held financially accountable. Call the experienced Bradenton medical malpractice lawyers of the Pendas Law Firm today for for legal counsel.

How Much is My Case Worth?

The amount you can expect to receive in a settlement or a lawsuit depends greatly on the extent of your injuries. The average medical malpractice settlement in the U.S. is $425,000, and most cases settle out of court. While our lawyers are experienced negotiators and will work to settle out of court if possible to save you money and time, we are more than willing to take the negligent party to court and win. The average jury award in a medical malpractice lawsuit is $1 million, according to MedScape. You may be compensated for:

  • Future medical procedures;
  • Medical bills;
  • Pain and suffering;
  • Loss of enjoyment in life;
  • Scarring or disfigurement;
  • Lost wages;
  • Lost earning capacity; and
  • Permanent disability.

Non-Economic Damage Medical Malpractice Cap of $500,000 in Florida

Unfortunately, due to influence put on state legislatures by doctor’s groups and insurance companies, there are limitations to medical malpractice lawsuits in Florida. As per Florida statute 766.118, the non-economic damage cap for medical malpractice lawsuits is $500,000. This means that for pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment in life, scarring, and other damages that do not have an “economic damage” aspect to them, the maximum you can receive is $500,000 (not including the financial compensation for economic damages, such as medical bills). However, if the physician’s negligence caused catastrophic and particularly severe injury to you, you may receive up to $1 million for non-economic damages. And, if the malpractice resulted in permanent vegetative state or death, the family of the victim may receive up to $1.5 million for non-economic damages. To ensure that you are awarded the maximum financial compensation that you are owed, it is important to work with an lawyer who has a proven history of success in medical malpractice cases.
