A Record Of Results In Medical Malpractice Cases Across The U.S.
At Kurzban Kurzban Tetzeli & Pratt, P.A., we believe strongly that people who have suffered serious injury at the hands of negligent health care providers deserve considerable compensation. Our attorneys have achieved an exceptional record of success for our clients in Florida and throughout the United States.
Our Approach Makes The Difference
Many medical malpractice law firms employ in-house medical professionals to assess cases and serve as expert witnesses. We do not; rather, our attorneys obtain impartial opinions from top medical experts. Our lawyers travel to Johns Hopkins and Harvard medical schools to consult with department heads. While it may cost more to engage these experts’ medical opinions and their testimony at trial, we believe it makes a difference in the recoveries we obtain for our clients.
For example, we obtained a $7.2 million judgment against Mercy Hospital for a 22-year-old man who was rendered brain dead during a routine operation for a broken leg, due to a hospital-based anesthesiologist’s failing to monitor the patient during the operation. At the time, it was the largest verdict for medical malpractice in Florida history.
In another case, we secured a $5.7 million award for a 37-year-old truck driver in a lawsuit for failure to diagnose. The jury agreed that three urologists and/or their professional associations were liable for missing obvious signs of treatable kidney disease. Because of the delayed diagnosis, the plaintiff lost both kidneys and needed a transplant to survive.
In addition to investing in experts, our medical malpractice attorneys prepare each case as if it would be argued before a jury. Our attorneys are willing and able to try cases to verdict when doctors, hospitals and their insurers deny responsibility and refuse to negotiate in good faith. Most law firms will do almost anything to avoid a trial, even if it means accepting less than their client deserves.
