Jacksonville Medical Malpractice Lawyers

We Hold Negligent Healthcare Professionals Accountable

Medical professionals and organizations are held to what is known as a “standard of care” compensation. Healthcare providers against whom medical negligence claims can be brought include: hospitals, outpatient surgical centers, nurses, doctors, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, certified nurse anesthetists, and home healthcare agency staff. Related claims can be brought against the manufacturers of healthcare products including orthopedic implants, wound vacs, and others. At Spohrer & Dodd, our Jacksonville medical malpractice attorneys have decades of experience handling these difficult and demanding claims.

To successfully represent victims of medical malpractice, our experienced trial lawyers closely monitor the persistent legislative changes that affect the ability of patients to recover compensation from healthcare providers who are negligent and cause injury or death. In addition to our own in-house physician, our malpractice attorneys have long-standing relationships with a network of currently practicing prominent physician and nurse experts in multiple fields of medicine. These resources are invaluable in allowing for thorough, prompt investigations of claims against healthcare providers, including identifying the applicable standards of care for the physicians and nurses whose care is being investigated and understanding how breaches in those standards of care can lead to serious injury and death.

Important Information on Filing Medical Malpractice Claims

Medical malpractice claims are governed by a complex set of laws or statutes which dictate when a claim can be filed and what steps must be taken prior to filing a claim. The statute of limitations, for instance, is the law that governs when a claim must be filed. Generally, a medical malpractice claim must be filed within two years of when the malpractice occurred or within two years of when an injury is discovered that is related to the malpractice. There are exceptions, however, which means it is very important to contact an attorney familiar with malpractice claims and the laws which govern them to determine the date by which your claim must be filed. Once the statute of limitations expires, your ability to bring a claim is barred forever. If you think you or a family member has been hurt by the negligence of a healthcare provider, it is very important not to delay in calling an attorney.

Our attorneys are experts at identifying potentially liable parties and aggressively prosecuting a wide range of medical negligence claims, including:

  • Surgical negligence
  • Birth injuries
  • Brain and spinal cord injuries
  • Delays in cancer diagnosis
  • Negligent administration of anesthesia
  • Misuse of medical devices
  • Nursing malpractice and negligence
  • Emergency room errors
  • Failure to diagnose an illness or injury
  • Failure to properly treat a medical condition
  • Prescription errors

Our team of attorneys and staff work cohesively to represent the best interests of our clients by understanding and responding to the complex challenges inherent in these cases. We have secured significant monetary recoveries for our clients across the spectrum of medical malpractice matters.

Dedicated to Maximum Recovery in Every Medical Malpractice Case

Our Jacksonville medical malpractice lawyers are dedicated to obtaining maximum recovery for each client we represent. Our in-house consulting physician empowers and expedites the evaluation of potential claims. Our team works closely to pinpoint how, when, and why a patient’s injury or death occurred and who is responsible. Locally and throughout the state, individuals as well as attorneys who do not specialize in this unique area of practice seek out our firm’s attorneys to maximize the recovery to victims of medical negligence.

One example of this is McGarry v. Memorial Hospital, where our legal team prevailed in complex and contentious litigation involving incapacitating injury caused by medical mistakes. At trial, a jury awarded our client $7,165,000 to compensate him for his losses and degraded quality of life.

Do not let medical malpractice go unnoticed and unpunished. Call (904) 637-7721 or contact us online to learn how we can help you demand justice.

About Spohrer Dodd

Over 150 Years of Combined Legal Experience
  • "The company who we believed wronged our family was so much bigger and larger than us - bigger, stronger, lot of money and lot of attorneys and the fact that Jay felt like he could go up against if you will, this giant with confidence. It gave us a sense of confidence and we couldn't have never done it without Jay - we couldn't have never gone up against the giant, if you will."
  • "I had a benign, yet fatal tumor in my brain. Other firms had turned us down, where we knew we had a case or felt we had a case. Gretchen couldn't have been any more sympathetic to my case and my situation. She'd stuck with us - she stuck with us and kept fighting for it."
