Experienced Medical Malpractice Lawyers in the Tampa, Florida metro area

Chadwick & Chadwick serves Medical Malpractice claims in Tampa Bay, including Pinellas, Hillsborough, Pasco, Hernando, Polk, Manatee counties and throughout central Florida.

Medical Malpractice

All know that all surgical and medical procedures involve a degree of risk or complications. And you also know a competent doctor in metropolitan Tampa Bay can greatly reduce those risks. You expect that of trained and experienced professionals.

So, when you or a family member seeks medical treatment from a physician, surgeon or other medical professional in any of the Tampa Bay area counties, you place your trust in that professional’s ability to render proper medical care. However, when that trust is shattered by negligent or incompetent conduct, it generally has significant and long lasting consequences.

Unfortunately, Florida’s judicial system cannot return you to the health you enjoyed before the negligent treatment. But, it can offer you monetary relief that will ease the financial burdens that always accompany negligent medical care. Chadwick & Chadwick, located in offices throughout the Tampa Bay region, are highly experienced in helping victims like you regain a measure of personal compensation.

Medical Malpractice may occur throughout the medical community – not just physicians and surgeons.

Emergency Room Malpractice

The Emergency Room in almost any care center has become an area where medical errors are common and often overlooked. Because of the increased load of patients and need to prioritize triage patients by order of medical emergency, many errors can happen in any emergency room.

When you are improperly discharged from the emergency room, and told that nothing is wrong, or when a diagnosis of a significant problem is overlooked, the initial medical errors in the emergency room may have dire personal consequences.

Hospital Errors

Negligence by any hospital employee may be equally devastating. Whether you have been injured because of a medication error, improper monitoring, faulty equipment, neglected hazards in the hospital, or failure of the hospital staff to communicate your true needs, your suffering could be the result of malpractice.

Chadwick & Chadwick team of experienced attorneys can identify the source of your injury. Contact us.

Nursing Malpractice

If you have been injured by the negligent actions of a nurse or a nursing staff member, you may have a malpractice claim.

Nursing malpractice occurs when a nursing staff member fails to adequately perform their medical duties, and that failure has harmed you.

Medication Errors

The calculation and administration of medications requires advanced expertise. Unfortunately, the consequences that result from negligence in this process may be harmful or even deadly. This includes the doctor’s prescription, the pharmacist’s accuracy, and the nurse’s following orders.

This may also include failure to assess your documented allergic reactions, confusing patient’s medications, creating harmful combinations of drugs, incorrect dosage, and administering the wrong drug.

Misdiagnosis or Failure to Diagnose

Most medical malpractice cases begin with misdiagnosis – the failure to correctly diagnose your condition, injury or disease. Cancer can go unrecognized, heart attacks can be passed off as gastrointestinal problems, and internal bleeding can be left untreated – all leading to increased serious issues.

Whether you live in Hernando, Pasco or Polk counties, Chadwick & Chadwick care and are determined to help you with legal matters to achieve rightful compensation.

Failure to Assess or Monitor Your Condition

If you experience a sudden medical emergency and a nurse, for instance, fails to administer medication or immediately notify a doctor, the nurse may be held liable for negligence. Failure to monitor your condition during a negative medical change may be malpractice.

Medical Equipment Injuries

If a medical attendant injures you with any medical equipment, like injuring you by dropping equipment on you, or burning you through misuse of the equipment, these actions may be malpractice.

Birth Injuries

Medical malpractice involving birth injuries is among the most tragic. Innocent, voiceless infants have strong advocate in Chadwick & Chadwick. We can become very aggressive in fighting for children who will require constant care for the rest of their lives because of a preventable mistake.
