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.

Florida Office of Insurance Regulation: Claims Against Medical Professional Liability Claims Reported. If a medical malpractice insurance company has paid on a claim, it will be reported on this website. We will search in each and every county and you’d be surprised as to how often bad doctors are moving around.

License Search

  • This website allows you to verify the medical practitioner’s license, whether they have been disciplined, where they practice (main + alternate locations), what they are qualified to do with their license and their supervising/subordinate practitioners.
  • If you click on practitioner profile you will find out where they have staff privileges, an email address, in which other states they hold a license, education, whether they hold any academic appointments, in which areas they are board certified, and whether they have been disciplined in the past 10 years.
  • From the Practitioner Profile Tab you can click on Financial Responsibility which will tell you whether or not they have medical-malpractice insurance, and in what amounts.
  • On this website, you can also seek out license information for acupuncturists, athletic trainers, chiropractors, pharmacists, dentists, EMT, nurses, technicians, massage therapists, midwives, nursing home administrators, dietitians/nutritionists, occupational therapists, physical therapists, naturopathic physician, and others.

We often find malpractice in cases where a medical practitioner is providing medical services that he or she is not qualified to perform or they hold themselves out as being board certified, when that is not the case. The American Board of Medical Specialties is a great place to learn about the board certification process for each specialty.
