Malpractice cases

Malpractice cases are brought against professionals that fail to render proper services due to negligence, ignorance, or apathy. Florida medical malpractice attorney, Ron Zakarin, has nearly 30 years of experience helping those who have suffered due to medical providers who practice below the acceptable standard of care required in their discipline.  Medical malpractice lawsuits can settle in the pre-litigation stage but often times, these cases only resolve after a lengthy trial. Malpractice cases are pursued to obtain damages for those injured due to the negligent conduct of the professional in whom he/she places his/her trust and confidence.  In these instances, aside from obtaining a monetary award to compensate the injured victim, the suit may shed light on the egregious errors of the health care providers and hold them accountable for their actions.

Malpractice cases are complex, and they require the gathering of testimony from medical experts and those specializing in the field of life care planning, economics, and a host of other technical areas. Substantial damages may be obtained but it takes experienced, seasoned malpractice attorneys to set the case in motion.  In many malpractice cases it takes a full service law firm to match the capabilities of the high-powered insurance defense lawyers. Medical malpractice cases are normally comprised of pre-litigation discovery, statements, investigation, and post filing pre-trial discovery, depositions, meetings with experts, preparation of exhibit lists, gathering evidence, settlement discussions, procedural meetings, discovery dates, witness lists, determining acceptable standards of care, consultations with medical experts, preparation of jury instructions, and preparation of demonstrative evidence just to name a few.
