FLORIDA & WASHINGTON, D.C. MEDICAL MALPRACTICE ATTORNEY

People trust their doctors with their lives. Unfortunately, that trust is often breached, resulting in catastrophic injuries that can diminish the quality of our lives forever. Medical malpractice occurs when a medical professional’s failure to adhere to standards of care in the medical community causes injury to patients under their care. Doctors are not the only medical professionals that can commit malpractice. Nurses, technicians, anesthesiologists, pharmacists, physical therapists, and other medical staff can be responsible for causing your injuries. Medical malpractice may occur for a variety of different reasons.
