We Help You Recover Compensation

If you or someone you love, sustained an injury because of medical negligence, then filing a lawsuit may give you an opportunity to recover compensation for your losses. Depending on the details of your case, a medical malpractice attorney may be able to help you seek compensation for

  • past and future medical bills

  • lost wages

  • physical pain, and

  • emotional suffering associated with the injury
     

In some cases, your medical malpractice attorney will recover compensation by negotiating a monetary settlement with the medical healthcare professional’s insurance company. However, when settlement negotiations do not produce fair results, Trentalange & Kelley’s malpractice attorneys may file a lawsuit against the healthcare professional(s) or hospital that allegedly committed the medical malpractice.

Use of Medical Experts in Malpractice Lawsuits

The Tampa medical malpractice attorneys at Trentalange & Kelley work closely with medical experts. Medical expert serves two purposes in a malpractice lawsuit. 1.The medical expert will evaluate the patient treatment that was administered, so they can carefully tell the jury how the doctor violated the accepted standard of care of the medical profession. 2. Medical experts will testify to the extent of the patient’s injuries and damages they suffered because of the malpractice. The expert witness’ professional credibility is critical for success in a malpractice case, so the expert witness must be a respected authority in the medical field at issue. Further, the testifying expert must be able to communicate complex issues in clear, concise manner so the jury will understand.
