OCALA MALPRACTICE

OCALA MEDICAL MALPRACTICE ATTORNEY

FIGHT FOR FULL & FAIR COMPENSATION

Maybe your doctor misdiagnosed your illness or prescribed an improper dose of medicine. Or maybe your child is the victim of a birth injury caused by negligence during delivery. No matter what medical error caused you harm, you probably feel betrayed by a medical system that you trusted to help you.

Unfortunately, victims of medical malpractice are often pushed aside by the doctors and medical facilities that caused their injuries. Getting something as simple as an apology can be an uphill battle. An admission of guilt? Nearly impossible. That is why medical malpractice lawsuits exist: to hold doctors, hospitals, and other legal professionals and entities accountable for the injuries they cause, and to recover financial relief for medical malpractice victims and their families.

FINDING THE RIGHT ATTORNEY FOR YOUR MEDICAL MALPRACTICE CASE

Some personal injury lawyers avoid medical malpractice cases due to their complexity and the challenge presented by a heavy burden of proof. Winning compensation for victims requires proving that there was a violation of the medical standard of care, which in turn means your lawyer must typically have solid relationships with physicians and other medical experts qualified to evaluate your claim.

With more than 15 years of practice, Steven Wingo has developed these relationships. When a case involves multiple defendants or extensive research, he may also call upon other lawyers who will work as co-counsel or take the lead in your Florida medical malpractice case. In other words, Mr. Wingo will make sure you have the right resources on your side throughout your case.
