Medical Malpractice kills over 400,000 people each year in the United States. This is more than the total population of Escambia and Santa Rosa County, Florida combined. After ten years of death, that number exceeds the population of the State of Florida. It is no wonder that medical malpractice insurance companies and health care providers have spent hundreds of millions of dollars lobbying to build walls to prevent claims. Florida legislature is dominated by these selfish interest groups. They have built walls that make it nearly impossible to pursue many claims in Florida, even when malpractice is clear.
Dan has worked with experienced attorneys throughout the State of Florida to protect people from medical malpractice for decades. This includes some of the first J.D./M.D. lawyers. This is an extremely complex field of practice with very limited time requirements to bring a claim. Once a claim is brought, there are very specific requirements and very limited timelines to act. Dan has been a member of trial lawyer groups specializing in representing persons injured by medical malpractice for over thirty-five years.
The more information our team has, the quicker we will be able to protect you and bring your claims to a conclusion. One word that each team member knows is not allowed to be used in our office is, “wait.” Waiting is falling into the hands of the insurance company’s vice-grip plan after you are injured. They know waiting is their best friend.
Any information, photos, insurance policies, statements, bills, accident reports, and anything else that will help support your claim is important to bring with you at the first appointment. Our team works to obtain all the necessary information. The more information you provide us, the easier it is to jump-start helping you. Our team will also establish several contact points to ensure the timely sharing of information so that no roadblocks come between you and your claim. Routine appointments with Dan and an open line of communication are established at the first meeting.
At the first meeting, you are introduced to contact personnel with whom you may communicate when Dan is unavailable.
If you have any family who will be helping you throughout your medical recovery and our representation, you are welcome to bring them so we can all be introduced. With your permission, they may be part of our open line of communication.
Often, people will stop by our office without an appointment just to ask questions. We always work to make time to answer any questions. Later, we introduce the process of what is needed to keep the ball rolling.
We understand the impact of intrusion into your life of harm, loss, and injury. It is unwanted, uninvited, and not needed. Whether you have a briefcase full of records or just the clothes on your back, we will work with you to help you through this complex process. We will also provide you with a system to keep all the records we need and to stay in touch.
To protect you from the insurance industry and defense lawyers, the specifics of our program are introduced to you over the time of your actual representation. We have even had representatives from insurance industries pose as potential clients at an initial free consultation. They do this to try to obtain as much information from us as they can. They never return for a follow-up.
Through our broad-brush approach, we hope you are able to appreciate our extensive work focusing on every detail of protecting you through our individualized system.
We hope you understand that in order to be The Champion it will require your full attention, communication, and to work closely with your legal team.
Please remember this system was developed throughout over thirty-five years of legal practice while representing thousands of injured persons and families. The system was formulated by speaking to and learning from many other attorneys around the United States and even insurance company executives.
