North Palm Beach law firm helps clients combat medical malpractice allegations
Medical malpractice claims are a constant threat in the healthcare field, and even the most careful and diligent practitioners can face significant damage to their careers and reputations. For nearly 30 years, Romaguera Law Group in North Palm Beach firm has aggressively represented Florida physicians and other healthcare providers and medical facilities in malpractice litigation. We apply our extensive legal knowledge and experience to building solid defensive strategies aimed at resolving malpractice claims with as little interruption of our clients’ practices as possible.
Skilled attorneys protect your career and your reputation
Claims of professional negligence and medical errors can significantly impact healthcare facilities as well as individual practitioners. Litigating a malpractice case can be a costly and stressful process lasting for several years. Allegations of malpractice, even if unproven, can damage a healthcare provider’s profitability, due to a decrease in business and diminished standing in the community. In addition to the potential economic damage, doctors may face the threat of disciplinary action, including suspension or revocation of their licenses.
With decades of experience handling malpractice lawsuits, our lawyers are well-versed in the standards of care required of Florida physicians, nursing homes and other medical facilities. We develop effective defensive strategies by applying a thorough understanding of the medical and legal issues involved in claims of delayed and incorrect diagnoses, treatment and medication errors, surgical errors and other types of medical malpractice. Our meticulous approach has allowed us to successfully obtain favorable judgments and settlements for healthcare clients in numerous cases.
Knowledgeable lawyers mount a strong defense using expert witness testimony
In medical malpractice cases, expert witnesses often provide the most valuable evidence in support of either party’s position. Expert opinion can be used to establish the appropriate standard of care under the circumstances of the case and whether the failure to meet that standard caused substantial harm to the patient. Our defensive approach includes challenging the credibility of the plaintiff’s experts and showing that the plaintiff has not satisfied the burden of proving negligence.
Our firm applies stringent criteria in selecting potential witnesses. Our attorneys have built relationships with renowned physicians and other professionals in a range of practice areas, whom we call upon to present strong expert testimony. In selecting new witnesses, we screen individuals in relevant areas of medical practice to ensure that they have the necessary background and training and specialized knowledge about the issues at hand, as well as the ability to deliver compelling testimony. In every case, we work to secure the strongest evidence available in support of our client’s position.
