Ocala Medical Malpractice Lawyer
Helping Families Seek Justice & Answers
At J.W. Chalkley, III, P.A., your Florida Medical Malpractice Lawyer, we can help you seek the justice and answers you are looking for.
Medical malpractice is a negligent or careless act by a doctor, hospital or other healthcare provider. Prior to practicing medicine, all doctors and healthcare professionals take an oath to do no harm. When a medical provider’s care fails to rise to the acceptable standard of care of his peers, it is malpractice.
While you are under a physician’s or healthcare professional’s care, you still have your rights. You have the right to receive adequate medical care, therapeutic and rehabilitative services, privacy, courtesy, dignity, protection from other doctors and their staff, and the right to be free from mental or physical abuse. Whether you are a patient in a hospital, nursing home or during routine or emergency medical treatments, you have rights that should not be violated. If your rights are violated, you are entitled to justice. Few cases are more personal and emotionally-charged than those of medical malpractice and healthcare negligence. It is easy to understand why. Victims of negligent physicians, nurses and healthcare providers, have had their lives destroyed or severely damaged by the very people they entrusted with their lives and the safety of their well being.
