Medical malpractice is the failure of a medical professional to act according to what is considered reasonable for their level of expertise.
It is important to understand that not being happy with your medical results does not constitute medical negligence. We know that you may feel this way, especially if you have lost a loved one, but if the medical provider in question followed the right steps and procedures and were still unable to treat an injury or illness, then sometimes this is simply due to natural reasons and not medical negligence. Medical professional’s always owe their patients a duty of care, which means they must act according to laws and agreements and meet what is expected from them. However, if the medical professional in question fails to follow the normal procedures expected of them and cause more harm to their patients, then this could actually be medical malpractice.What is My Lawsuit Worth?
Every situation is different, so each lawsuit is unique and worth a different amount. There are many factors that weigh into the total value of a claim, so do not believe a lawyer that tells you your claim is worth millions of dollars without further reviewing the facts of your case. Our Sarasota Medical Malpractice Lawyers can meet with you to discuss your potential claim and if we think your claim is valid, then we can call in our team of experts to determine the full scope of your injuries and suffering and place a fair dollar amount on your claim. We can review your case for free and with no obligation. We will always be 100% honest about your chances and the possible value of your claim.What Are Grounds for Medical Malpractice?
Medical malpractice cases are always caused by preventable mistakes that should have never happened. To pursue a medical malpractice claim, the victim must show that their injury resulted in income loss, disability, severe pain and suffering, serious hardships, or other types of significant economic damages.Cases We Commonly Handle

The responsible party usually will not come forward and accept any blame, so the best way to determine if you have a valid claim is to consult with our attorneys at Whittel & Melton. We will happily review your case for free and without any obligations, so that you can know for sure if you are entitled to financial compensation.
On that same note, we encourage you to avoid signing any agreements or settlement offers that the responsible party may offer you. These agreements are usually made to cover the backs of those who are at-fault and not actually provide you with what you truly deserve. It is best to avoid discussing any offers or settlements without the presence of your attorney.What Types of Financial Compensation Can I Recover?
The compensation you may be entitled to may include:
- All medical expenses, including future and past medical bills (surgeries, treatments, therapies, medicines and all doctor fees, etc.)
- Lost wages. We know when you suffer from medical malpractice you may be unable to work for extended periods of time, and you have the right to be compensated for all money you have lost.
- When there are permanent injuries, you deserve compensation for disability.
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of quality of life
- Loss of enjoyment of life
Financial compensation will not make the pain and suffering you have endured go away, but it can help to ensure that you have a better quality of life and provide you with some type of justice. When you have suffered from medical negligence of any kind, our Sarasota Medical Malpractice Attorneys at Whittel & Melton can help you and your family recover from this terrible situation.
