Miami Medical Malpractice Attorneys

If you or a loved one has been injured by a medical provider, the damages can be devastating. The lawyers and staff at Bernstein & Maryanoff have the financial resources and experience to fully investigate your case and help you recover compensation. Our lawyers have handled numerous medical malpractice claims against hospitals, doctors, nurses, and physician assistants. From our principal office in Miami and numerous other offices across Florida, we represent clients throughout the state.

Many times, it is difficult to know whether your injury or loss was caused by the carelessness or negligence of the medical provider. Typically, the doctor, hospital, or nurse will not voluntarily explain what they did wrong that caused your injury or your family member’s death. Often, the only way to find out what happened is to seek a lawyer’s assistance.

Doctors, hospitals, and other medical providers have a duty to exercise a level of care that is standard for other health care providers in the community. Failure to do so constitutes malpractice. Each medical malpractice situation needs to be carefully analyzed to determine whether your provider failed to exercise a level of medical care that is standard in the community. Examples of malpractice include:

  • Failure to diagnose cancer or other diseases
  • Surgical errors
  • Anesthesia errors
  • Birth injuries such as cerebral palsy and Erb’s Palsy
  • Medical errors
  • Failure to conduct appropriate medical tests
  • Failure to properly read X-rays
  • Failure to properly monitor patients
  • Leaving foreign objects, such as sponges, inside patients.

In one malpractice case handled by Bernstein & Maryanoff, our client went to an emergency room because he needed urgent medical attention. However, emergency room personnel failed to diagnose a bone fracture on an X-ray that was taken of our client, which led to catastrophic injuries.

Call Now

To file a medical malpractice lawsuit, Florida law requires our lawyers to first obtain the complete medical records from your medical provider and give them to an expert doctor. That expert will review the records and provide our lawyers with an opinion. If the expert’s opinion is that your treatment fell below the accepted community standard of care, then the expert doctor will provide our lawyers with an affidavit that will allow us to initiate an action against the at-fault medical provider.
