Our attorneys handle medical malpractice cases in Orlando, Winter Park, Sanford, and all across Central Florida. We are available to meet with you free of charge by appointment in a comfortable office we maintain in Orlando.
When tourists think of Florida, they think of the sunshine, beaches, and Orlando. Because of its central location and easy access to the theme parks, Orlando is one of the fastest growing areas in Florida.
Our offices in Orlando are located just east of the downtown corridor in the beautiful Thornton Park District. Our two-story converted house is surrounded by one of the most desirable neighborhoods in Central Florida. Just off of Lake Eola, the Thornton Park District offers easy access to dining, shopping, and event spaces, and is a short walk from downtown Orlando.
While we take medical malpractice cases throughout the state, our lawyers are usually found in our Orlando location. If you would like to retain us for your case, we will arrange to meet you at your home, the hospital, or in our Orlando office by appointment, at any time that is mutually convenient.
The lawyers of the McMillen Law Firm have decades of experience handling all types of injuries and harm caused by medical professionals. Here are some of the issues we have dealt with:
For patients with hemorrhagic strokes, surgery may be necessary to relieve the pressure building up inside of the skull. Not all facilities have neurosurgeons available on staff, and transfer to a facility that has a neurosurgeon may be necessary.
As with any medical malpractice lawsuit, the party claiming malpractice occurred is required to prove a cancer misdiagnosis. This means that the plaintiff is responsible for providing sufficient evidence that the defendant failed to properly diagnose cancer. In order to do this, the plaintiff must prove some basic elements that establish a medical negligence lawsuit. For instance:
Patients who wish to file a cancer misdiagnosis lawsuit should speak with an experienced cancer misdiagnosis lawyer as soon as possible. An Orlando medical malpractice lawyer can help to determine if the patient has a case by collecting preliminary data surrounding the incident and conducting medical and legal research needed for a potential case.
Doctors are required to protect their patients and most do. The few who fail to meet the standards of care can be guilty of malpractice. Here are a few questions we often hear regarding possible medical malpractice cases.
Under Florida law, a healthcare provider must exercise that level of care, skill, and treatment which is recognized as acceptable and appropriate by reasonably prudent similar health care providers under similar circumstances. In other words, the standard of care is often described as doing what a reasonably prudent doctor (or nurse, dentist, etc.) would do under the circumstances.
The first thing we need to know before we start looking into a medical malpractice case is, when did the incident occur? Florida has a very strict statute of limitations regarding medical malpractice cases. So it’s important that we know that there is still time to file a lawsuit.
Most medical malpractice plaintiff attorneys work on a what is called a contingency fee basis (that is, no fee if no recovery.) Therefore, the next step is to retain a good malpractice lawyer. With your help, your lawyer will then take you through all the steps that come in a medical malpractice case.
