Medical Malpractice & Negligence Verdicts and Settlements

Malpractice and medical negligence is a major area of focus and success at Spohrer & Dodd. Our experienced team of personal injury lawyers, in-house consulting physician and nurse empower our approach to the evaluation of negligence claims and representation of the victims of medical negligence.

The majority of claims against health care providers in Florida which are settled are done so confidentially, a requirement typically demanded by Florida hospitals and physicians. This significantly limits the ability of attorneys to publish the details of the cases resolved through settlement. Our experienced malpractice attorneys successfully resolve numerous cases each year prior to trial, with significant settlements for our clients who have been injured due to the negligence of health care providers.

Health care providers against whom cases have been successfully resolved, either by settlement or trial, include the following: hospitals and their nursing staff, surgeons, anesthesiologists, hospitalists, internal medicine physicians, otolaryngologists, radiologists, primary care physicians, ophthalmologists, emergency room physicians, obstetricians and gynecologists, critical care specialists, orthopedists, pediatricians, pulmonologists, neurologists and neurosurgeons, and others.
