Medical law issues can affect anyone at any time. If you or your family members have experienced any of these issues, you may have a case:
Whether you have been harmed by the actions, or lack of action, of another.
Whether you have harmed someone else by your actions or lack of action.
If so, is the nature of the harm medical (e.g. malpractice, nursing home, hospital, injury)?
If so, can it be fixed, or are you entitled to, or exposed to, damage awards?
If awards are possible the amount you receive will depend upon specific details of your case.
Review of medical records is a daunting experience for anyone, but exceptionally difficult for those without a medical background. Many medical terms may not be understood by the typical layperson. Also, it is easier to spot potential issues with a general idea of what should have happened. It might be difficult for someone without medical knowledge to decide what should have been done, interpret what was done, and understand what was not done.
Dr. Nicholl can help you decide if you have a case, and if you do, he can navigate the incredibly complex process which must be followed thereafter if you are to have any chance of success. Florida has very specific steps which must be taken to file a medical malpractice lawsuit. If the rules are not properly followed then your case, even if it is a solid one, may be dismissed.
If you believe you have a case, please contact us for a consultation.
