Medical Malpractice Information


Medical errors are the eighth leading cause of death in the United States. In Florida alone, hundreds of hospital patients die each year as a result of preventable medical malpractice. Doctors are not the only source of medical errors. Hospitals, surgery centers, clinics, pharmacies, home health nurses and nursing homes can all be liable for medical errors that result in serious injury or wrongful death. Our Tampa Medical Malpractice Attorneys are here to assist you and your loved ones who may have been harmed by the negligence of a medical professional.

However, not every bad medical result is considered malpractice and does not mean the healthcare provider was negligent in his/her care and treatment. Medical malpractice occurs when a health care provider fails to follow accepted medical practices for a given medical specialty or procedure. At the Mandelbaum Trichler Law Center, P.A., we work with medical experts to establish whether there was any breach of the relevant standard of care in your case. Some of the more common types of injuries/cases involving medical malpractice can include the following:

  • Accidental amputation
  • Bed sores
  • Birth trauma
  • Brain damage
  • Cerebral Palsy
  • Contaminated blood
  • Failure to diagnose
  • Failure to treat
  • Incorrect diagnosis
  • Infectious diseases
  • Lack of informed consent
  • Malnutrition
  • Prescription errors/overdoses
  • Strokes and heart attacks
  • Wrongful death

You should be mindful that medical malpractice claims must be filed within two (2) years from the date of the alleged medical negligence or they will likely be barred by the Statute of Limitations. If you have reason to believe you or a loved one may have sustained harm or injury as the direct result of medical negligence, please contact us, your Tampa Personal Injury Attorneys.
