Why Do You Need a Boca Raton Medical Malpractice Lawyer?

Medical malpractice can involve serious injuries and losses. A medical malpractice lawyer can investigate the cause of your injury and hold all responsible parties liable. Let our attorneys do the work to secure the compensation you need for a better quality of life.

Hospitals, medical professionals, and healthcare workers are held to high patient standards when it comes to providing medical care. The stakes can be as serious as life and death. If these standards are not met and an injury results, you deserve justice for you and your loved ones.

Medical malpractice is a broad area of injury law covering many different kinds of healthcare failures, such as hospital errors, physician negligence, and prescription errors.

At Osborne & Francis, we understand how malpractice can impact a person’s life. We have included introductory information and facts about medical malpractice below, including how a damages award or settlement can assist you, and what you should expect from your medical malpractice attorney.

Contact us at (561) 293-2600 to schedule a free consultation today if you require more specific feedback or if you need to speak with a lawyer.

What Kind of Settlement Can a Boca Raton Medical Malpractice Attorney Help Secure?

A Boca Raton medical malpractice attorney can help injured patients secure various costs and losses, legally known as damages. Based on the specific circumstances of the case, compensation could cover:

  • Medical bills for both past and future treatments, including surgery costs, prescription medications, physical therapy sessions, and long-term care
  • Lost wages, loss of future earning capacity, and other employment-related costs like insurance coverage or missed promotion opportunities
  • Pain and suffering expenses associated with the ordeal, including psychological impacts of the injury
  • Punitive damages, which are intended to punish the wrongdoer for their violation and discourage future instances of the misconduct
  • Wrongful death expenses if the malpractice resulted in the loss of life; damages can cover funeral expenses, loss of household income, and the human cost of losing a spouse, parent, or child

No amount of financial compensation can fully undo the losses that medical malpractice might cause. However, a settlement can help tremendously in helping you and your family secure a better quality of life through proper medical care and equipment, and other items needed to get you on track.

At Osborne & Francis, we have a proven case record of returning billion-dollar and million-dollar verdicts and settlements on behalf of our clients. We have successfully handled cases involving defective medical products like knee replacements, dangerous drugs such as Traysol, and many other types of medical malpractice.

So you've been in a car accident. What happens next? There are many things that you should do but here are the three most important:

Number One: See a doctor immediately. 

A broken bone is easy to see, but some injuries are not. The most common injuries from car accidents happen in the neck, back, or head. The only way to diagnose and treat them is by seeing a doctor. A doctor can help ease the pain, provide medication, reassure you of how your injury may impact your daily life, and tell you what not to do to make it worse.

A visit to the doctor can also give you legally protected time off to recover and rest your body after an accident, and it documents and provides the evidence you may need for your case. Even a five-mile-per-hour car accident can cause a serious injury. So whether you've had a severe accident or a minor collision, see a doctor. And if you don't have medical insurance, let us know and we'll make sure that you receive the proper care. 

Number Two: Write everything down.

Even if it seems small, during times of stress or injury it is common to forget the little details. Make sure you keep note of the pain that you're in. With neck, back, and head injuries, sometimes simple activities such as walking up the stairs or picking up a toddler may cause severe pain. 

You may not be sleeping well at night. Documenting how much you sleep and how often you wake up due to pain is also very important. And lastly, if you have any cuts or bruises, take daily photos as you heal. This will provide visual evidence of the injuries that you've suffered. 

Number Three: Do not speak to an insurance company until you've spoken to a lawyer.

Please understand that the insurance adjuster works for a billion-dollar corporation and not for you. Their interests are solely for their insurance company, and their goal is to provide you with the least amount of financial settlement as quickly as possible. When you do speak with them, remember they will record the conversation. Why do they do this? Because they've been trained to ask questions that may confuse you. So talk to us before you talk to them. 

So remember: See a doctor, document everything, and call us before calling the insurance company for your free private consultation. We are here for you. Real tough lawyers fighting real tough issues.

“Attorneys Greg Francis and Ryan Fletcher at Osborne & Francis Law Firm represented me in my personal injury case.The defendant drew a line in the sand and was adamant on a settlement amount I was almost willing to accept. After the dust settled and the smoke cleared, we settled for 3 times that amount!!! When they say ‘Real Tough Lawyers,’ they mean it.”
