We review plenty of potential medical malpractice cases. Before we decide whether or not to accept such a case, we have to do some preliminary investigation. This includes reviewing the potential client’s medical records (prior medical history, charts of the offending doctor & records of doctors seen since the offending medical provider). After reviewing the medical records we will look into the doctor him or herself to determine if there is a source of money (i.e. malpractice insurance) to go after. Before going to a doctor you can also use these tools to figure out if they have insurance. To us, carrying insurance indicates that the doctor sees him or herself as human and is capable of making mistakes. It shows thay care enough about their patients to want to do the right thing should a bad mistake occur, rising to the level of medical negligence which causes significant injury. The below websites will provide all sorts of information about every medical practitioner in the State of Florida.
