Physician Assistant Medical Malpractice

Strong Legal Guidance and Support for Patients Injured by a Negligent Physician Assistant

Steadfast support after medical negligence harms you

Physician assistants are a relatively new classification in the medical field. They are somewhere between a doctor and a nurse in their education, ability and responsibilities. The lack of education for physician assistants with the autonomy many facilities give them to practice medicine is an alarming risk to public safety. At Osborne & Francis Law Firm PLLC, our attorneys have extensive experience holding hospitals and medical groups accountable for the negligence of their physician assistants. We recover justice for victims harmed at the hands of an unqualified medical practitioner.

Why are physician assistants a potential danger for patients?

The name “physician assistant” implies that they are assistants to trained and licensed medical physicians. The position was originally created for them to take on some of a doctor’s easier case load with oversight from the doctor. Hospitals encouraged these practitioners because they cost the hospital significantly less than a medical doctor. The physician assistant role has morphed into professionals who now practices with almost complete autonomy. Our medical malpractice attorneys are alarmed at the number of negligent actions committed at the hands of unqualified medical professionals, including physician assistants. We recover compensation for victims who do to receive the medical care they deserve.

Common complications caused by physician assistant negligence in Florida

Physician assistants are more likely to commit medical malpractice because they receive only a fraction of the education that medical doctors receive and they do not have to do a residency before they are licensed to start working on patients. We have noticed trends in the types of malpractice regularly committed, including:

“I am so thankful for EVERYONE, the entire staff at Osborne & Francis Law, for mentoring me through the mediation process with my hip replacement failures. I didn't realize how MUCH pressure they relieved me of by helping me deal with the reality of this traumatic time in my life, as it was OVER so quickly with a positive result. My family is grateful to have their mom HAPPY & FOCUSED on the future, rather than worrying over what happened in the past! FAST FORWARD, we are LIVING LIFE to the fullest once again!”

“I couldn’t have asked for a better lawyer/ firm — everything was done professionally exactly how I wanted. Due to COVID my personal attorney Mr. Garcia was still able to make things work in a timely manner and he never made me feel like he wasn’t working. Overall I’m happy with how my case turned out and I would recommend him and this law firm to anyone. 100% satisfied.”

Quick and fair resolution to a unique case. On advice of my own attorney, I engaged Joseph Osborne of Osborne & Francis of Boca Raton, FL. Mr. Osborne had considerable experience in cases such as mine and the results showed that. Mr. Osborne and his staff were very helpful, kept me up to date, and listened to my input. The settlement was very fair as far as I am concerned.

“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.”
