Pensacola Medical Malpractice Lawyer

Medical malpractice, sometimes referred to as medical negligence, occurs when a doctor, surgeon, nurse, healthcare provider, nursing home or medical facility makes a medical mistake in treatment or diagnosis which results in an injury or death. There are over one million documented cases of medical mistakes that occur each year in this country. We have all heard of the wrong procedure being performed or the wrong medication being administered by a health practitioner that cause injury or death to a patient. These types of medical errors are basically deviations from the generally accepted standards of medical practice. An unfortunate injury or death that occurs from one of these deviated practices is a travesty and when these errors occur a medical malpractice lawsuit can be filed against the healthcare professional. Sometimes the malpractice occurs in the form of an infectious disease that has not been recognized by the facility, but often times in a careless practitioner who performed an avoidable act, that results in injuries to others. When these mistakes occur the healthcare provider or heath care facility needs to held responsible for their actions.

At the Shimek Law firm we understand that preventable and avoidable mistakes that take place can have devastating consequences to loved ones and families. Often times the injustice is compounded when the injured party, relative or surviving family member is denied access to medical records and information about how the error occurred.
