Tampa Medical Malpractice Attorneys
Accomplished trial lawyers fight for injured patients and pursue the maximum level of compensation
The widespread impact of healthcare providers in the Tampa area is readily apparent: five of the top nine employers in Tampa — BayCare Health System, HCA West Florida, Tampa General Hospital, Florida Hospital, and Moffitt Cancer Center — are in the healthcare sector. When you see a doctor at these or any other facilities, you have a right to competent treatment. Yet, every year, far too many patients suffer serious injuries at the hands of the healthcare providers they trusted. If you’ve been harmed by a provider’s negligence, you deserve full compensation for your losses, including your pain and suffering. Unfortunately, studies show the majority of medical malpractice claims resolve without any payment to the injured patient. However, when you entrust your medical malpractice case to the Sessums Law Group, you get the determined services of a board-certified civil litigation attorney with the skill and resources to pursue the compensation you deserve.
Experience with a wide variety of medical malpractice claims
To prevail in a medical malpractice case, the injured patient must be able to prove by a preponderance of the evidence that a healthcare provider made a mistake that directly harmed the patient. The plaintiff must also prove the mistake was one that a reasonably competent healthcare provider would not have made. Our attorneys are prepared to represent claims arising from various types of medical negligence, including:
- Delayed diagnosis
- Medication errors
- Surgical errors
- Anesthesia errors
- Postsurgical neglect
Our Tampa attorneys can bring claims against medical doctors, surgeons, nurses, dentists, chiropractors, radiologists, anesthetists, and other medical professionals as well as medical groups, hospitals, and nursing facilities.
Seek an attorney early for the best possible results
As with auto accidents, the Florida statute of limitations places a two-year time limit on medical malpractice cases. The time period begins on the date of the healthcare provider’s error that caused the injury. However, since so many incidents of medical malpractice produce latent injuries, the law follows a discovery rule that says the statutory period doesn’t begin until the patient discovered the injury.
Still, it never pays to delay contacting an attorney simply because the law allows you two years. When you consult us promptly, we can begin the investigation, preserving evidence before it can be lost. We also have access to qualified experts who can evaluate the treatment you received to help us prove negligence and causation. When you retain our services for your personal injury, you get our full commitment to exceptional client service through every stage of your case.
