Tallahassee Physician Assistant Malpractice Attorneys
As Physician Assistants Take Over Care Of Patients, Mistakes Are Made
Many Florida clinics use physician assistants (PAs) in place of doctors to handle routine issues. This can improve efficiency and reduce costs, but only with the correct supervision. As supervision decreases, we receive more and more complaints against physician assistants. Our Tallahassee lawyers are familiar with the laws surrounding physician assistant malpractice and liability and can help you seek compensation if your have been harmed.
The law firm of Hinkle & Foran has a reputation for successfully resolving complex medical malpractice cases. Our extensive medical and legal knowledge, our excellent customer service and having the resources to see every case we accept through to completion has earned us this well-deserved reputation. The majority of our cases are settled out of court because we take the time to prepare every one for trial, giving us a better starting point during negotiations.
Who Is Actually Responsible?
Physician assistants have the training to:
- Assist doctors in monitoring patients in hospitals and nursing homes
- Evaluate patients
- Perform routine diagnostic procedures
- Counsel patients regarding treatment and therapy
PAs are supposed to have a doctor sign off on all files and prescriptions they write so there is some form of oversight. Unfortunately, doctors enforce little oversight with their physician assistants. This lack of supervision has caused serious harm to patients, including medication errors and misdiagnosis.
Our attorneys thoroughly research your medical records and consult with medical experts to determine how the error occurred, as well as the lasting impact on your life. We use this information to build our case and pursue compensation for you while working to prevent this from happening to anyone else.
As A Patient, You Should Expect Proper Care From All Medical Professionals
