Tallahassee Nurse Malpractice Lawyers
When Mistakes Are Made, Someone Needs To Take Responsibility
Advance Registered Nurse Practitioners (ARNPs) can perform many of the same procedures and examinations as doctors but have less training and education. When they make mistakes that affect your health and well-being, they should be held accountable. If you or a loved one has been harmed by nurse malpractice, our Tallahassee attorneys have the skill and experience to hold that individual accountable for his or her actions.
The law firm of Hinkle & Foran has helped hundreds of victims of medical malpractice in Florida obtain compensation for the harm done to them by members of the medical establishment. We have a well-deserved reputation for resolving complicated cases, as evidenced by our list of verdicts and settlements. You will work directly with one of our named partners when we accept your case. Our goal is to bring your case to a conclusion that you find satisfactory, whether that involves a settlement or going to trial.
Doctors Vs. Advance Registered Nurse Practitioners
ARNPs have many of the same responsibilities as doctors, but are not as well trained and should have a doctor sign off on their treatment files. ARNPs can work in clinics without doctors and may only report to a doctor once or twice a year to have their files approved. This means mistakes can slip by unnoticed until a patient comes to serious harm. Our firm handles cases involving ARNPs and Physician Assistants:
- Failure to diagnose
- Medication errors
- Providing care without the appropriate training
- Failure to monitor a patient
- Failure to follow up with a patient
Our extensive medical and legal knowledge helps us pinpoint how the malpractice occurred. We consult with medical experts regarding the impact the mistake can have on your life, now and going forward. Our lawyers prepare every case we accept for trial, and our firm has the resources to see all cases through to their conclusions.
We know how hard it is to suffer injury because of someone else’s negligence. We will help you gain compensation for the harm done to you.
