Want to Talk with Florida Medical Malpractice Lawyer About Your Medical Issue Cases
It is not uncommon to hear about medical cases that result in significant personal injury settlements but most people are surprised to learn about how frequently medical malpractice actually occurs.
Some studies state that medical malpractice is the third leading cause of death in the United States, greater than all diseases except heart attacks and cancer. Proving medical malpractice requires you work with an attorney who has a proven track record of winning verdicts for their clients.
Law Offices of Paul K. Schrier, PLLC started in Miami and our main office is still there, but for many years we have handled cases throughout Florida. Our offices are:

Medical Malpractice: What is it?
In order to prove a medical malpractice case we must prove that a doctor or other medical professional acted in a negligent manner. As a patient, you have a right to a level of care that any reasonable professional would provide. Medical practitioners are human and mistakes do happen. However, when a mistake could have been avoided, you should not have to suffer the loss associated with that error.
At the Law Offices of Paul K. Schrier, PLLC, we have more than 50 years experience with personal injury cases, including medical malpractice. We can help victims of medical malpractice with a variety of issues including:
- Medical errors – including diagnostic errors, anesthesia errors and medication errors can cause irreparable damage and even death in some patients.
- Misdiagnosis – when a patient has been improperly diagnosed it could lead to far more serious illnesses. For example, a patient who is reporting pain in the breastbone could be diagnosed as having a muscle pull when it later turns out they have cancer.
- Surgical errors – there have been reports of patients who went to the hospital for routine surgery and had limbs amputated, had the wrong surgical procedure or suffered after surgery due to improper procedures.
- Faulty equipment – when you are having tests performed, you have the right to expect that diagnostic equipment is in proper working order and will properly identify any issues you are having. From time to time, medical devices and equipment malfunction and can cause injuries or even death.
It is important that you understand when you file a claim for medical malpractice that insurance companies are going to try to draw out the process of approving your claim as long as possible. They understand that under Florida law, that a personal injury suit must be filed within two years of when you discovered your injury or illness.
